I first visited Greece at age 20, in 1968. Out of all the places in Greece I visited then, the one that stole my heart was Corfu. I have been back to Corfu many times since then and, luckily, the villagers still remember me!
But I am enchanted by MOST of Greece. The Greeks are the warmest people I have ever met, and maybe the most spirited. I feel closer to them as a people than "my own people," Americans. As I often tell Greeks, Eimai Ellenida stin cardia mou (I am Greek in my heart).
I cherish the Greek heritage in all things, maybe especially in music, which still enchants me.
Just call me besotted! I think I really AM Greek in my heart!
My #1 interest is Greece, in all its permutations.
I am a great reader.
I love to travel, to experience new sights, new sounds, new smells, new people.
I am fairly knowledgable about French and Italian film of the 1960s and 1970s -- what I consider their heyday.
I believe in living simply. I am not a great consumer, as most Americans are. I can live inexpensively, within reason.
I am fairly fluent in French and still remember some of my written and spoken Modern Greek.
