So much happening

These last few weeks that there is no time for blogging which is a pity because there is a lot to tell.
I'll have to keep it short and therefore just show a few pictures of the past days.



View from the bedroomwindow, the morning of Easter sunday



Roast goat, kokoretsi, salads and more food but most importantly: good company


Saint George's day is officially on the 23rd of April but if Easter is after that date, it is celebrated on the monday after Easter. And that was yesterday. On that day there is also the traditional horse race. There are two categories. The first category is the race with horses and the second category is the race with mules and donkeys using the traditional wooden saddle.



This is Yorgos (George) and the mule he rode with the wooden saddle. He has all reasons to be happy: It is his nameday and he made the 3rd place in the race which is not bad at all.
Congratulations Yorgo!


And here comes the over-all winner of the day.
