Thank you

I’d like to thank all of you who sent me words of commiseration and encouragement over the last two days. I was touched by all the positive energy, sometimes from people I hadn’t spoken to in years.


I’m finding it difficult at this moment to answer each and every one separately, while the news are still full of updates, tragic stories and horribly depressing photos. Even worse, there are still a lot of people missing—I can’t imagine what their families and friends are going through.

I’m so sad Greece has again made the front pages for such a dreadful reason—it seems our troubles are never ending.

The beach below is Kokkino Limanaki (the little red port) where we often go to swim. It had beautiful pine trees above a red cliff and a lovely view of the island of Euboea. Many people tried to escape from there.



When the wind is blowing, fire changes direction with the speed of lightning. Sometimes there are only a few meters between hell and safety.
