Week 3 of our trip
Here are a few photos. It seems strange to see the beer and wine in the same aisle as soft drinks in the supermarket. Snow has fallen in Florina, the town about 2.5 hours from Salonika and where Michael was born. However not where we are staying, 25 km from Salonika near the sea.

The oranges are sour, so could perhaps be used only for marmalade.

25th November 2008

Hi Gwen & Michael, Wow the pics are fantastic and I just love the Xmas scenes that are "painted" on the shop windows. They look awesome. The other pics of Michael and the greek themes are so great. I still have very fond memories of Greece. Yes,Winter is approaching over there but Melbourne's weather is almost as cold. There was snow in the mountains a couple of days ago! Yep typical Melb weather but we are getting some rain.Waiting to see more pics especially family ones.Stay safe, have loads of fun, relax and enjoy your well deserved holiday. (Love the blue pumpkins.reminds me of my Aunty's house only they were a natual colour) Take care and lots of love and kisses to everyone there (family & friends) Love Coula and Tony xxx :o)
