I will start with presenting a fabulous Greek woman,
unfortunately not with us any more;

Greece Remembers the Emblematic Melina Mercouri
By Philip Chrysopoulos – Mar 6, 2018

6th of March it was 24 years ago since she died,
here from Greekreporter;

“In her life Melina Mercouri was several things: a striking woman; a stage and movie actress; a patriot; an activist; a politician, but above all — and this is what she remains even after her death — she is a great Hellene.

Melina Mercouri loved Greece so much that she epitomized the Hellenic spirit to the point that she became its ambassador worldwide.

To the heart of every Greek, she was the first politician who fought for what is truly right: the return of the Parthenon Sculptures to their home, in the Parthenon, on the Acropolis.

It was 1982 when Melina Mercouri, with her overwhelming passion and the shine of the star that marked her, started her campaign for the return of the so-called Elgin marbles.

Her passion, her desire, her fight for the return of the priceless sculptures to their rightful home is summed up in the phrase: “I hope to see the marbles return to Athens before I die. But if they return later, I will be reborn to see them.””

I will never ever forget her funeral, I saw on Greek TV,
I had never seen so many people standing along the road,
so many greeting her, so many flowers …
She came back from America.
It was the biggest funeral I every seen!

So let us be proud like she was and celebrate!!!

I will try to translate this:

“HOUSEWIFE
THE ONLY STABLE AND PERMANENT JOB,
WHICH WILL NEVER FAIL,
WHO DOES NOT KNOW CRISIS,
KNOWS NO DISMISSALS …
NOR A SALARY!”
– well, that was maybe not the best one for The Women’s Day,
but it is a good example or …

Over to Skopelos the 7th of March;

Hope you had a good day as well!
