Καλό μήνα σε όλους!
…Had you noticed that included in THE ISLAND BUS blog package is a super-rudimentary course of Greek greetings and smalltalk? Today’s first line reads in super-rudimentary English: Happy month to all of you! – and yes, it means: may you have a splendid February! (To unlock the full version of director’s Greek, you have to buy me a drink. It’s going to be worth it, I promise: yesterday, a very flattering Communication Officer of the Secretary General of Communication and Information congratulated me on my Greek when responding to my email request for a shooting permit. Ever since I’ve been a bit full of myself.)
So, what’s news here? Well, the start of the week saw Sibylle (that’s me, the director with the fantastic Greek) and main ISLAND BUS character and Tilos resident Saeed (soon to learn fantastic English – Anglophone world, beware!) invading the castle in Megalo Chorio for a photo session, as a few portraits of the “boy who came” – who is by now a beard-growing adolescent – were needed.
I think we managed alright…
… until altitude dizziness kicked in…
… then we might have gone a bit over the top…
Don’t blame it on us – blame it on Tilos winter landscape in full bloom!
(DEUTSCHE VERSION – in fantastic German, of course)
