Apologies as usual for the gap in posts for the last few weeks.  I did actually add a couple of posts but for some reason they were added as “pages” instead of posts and therefore did not connect with my friends.  Our computer had some problems and when they were fixed I lost a few of my programmes including our Skype and my downloading programme for my camera.  Thanks to my Greek teacher I am able to post a few photos of our latest celebration.

IMG_1801This is the cutting of the New Year’s Cake with lots of the students of our teacher Manolis.  This celebration takes place anytime during the first two months of the year, when families friends and groups of people get together for the cake, drinks and nibbles.

untitledIMG_1808The highlight of the proceedings is the finding, by someone, of a coin in a piece of cake.  Surprise, surprise, Kent was the winner and not only did this mean that he won a prize it also ensures a year of GOOD LUCK.  Kent always says that he never wins anything!  Actually I benefitted from his win which did include a very special edition of dictionaries, Greek to English which will help in my Greek studies.
