Greetings to one and all from the Shepherds on Paros,
Notice the figs on the tree outside the DEMA (city hall).
Many of you have been waiting months for our next newsletter. All I can say is that it never made it to the top of our To Do list. This year Karin has helped less at the hotel and spent more time housekeeping and nest building at our home in Aliki. So I have spent more time at the hotel and marketing, and . . . well, enjoying our island both in Parikia and Aliki.
So for those of you that like to keep up with island happenings we have an alternative. I have started a blog about Greek island life. In the blog I not only tell of anything interesting that we are doing but provide information about other Cyclades islands and Greece travel. I am enjoying the bloging sensation.
For the up-coming 2006 season we are emphasizing our Art Workshops with two scheduled in May and three in September. This year we are also marketing several villas in addition to the hotel. It is not too early to pick a date for your holiday here. Let us know and we will match you to the best location for you.
We are enjoying the quiet, non-commercial Christmas here. Read more about it on our blog.
Another big happening is that Karin and I are taking Greek lessons. We learned this:
If that is Greek to you, then try this:
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Michael & Karin
P.S. Before the end of the year we are changing our web site hosting provider. So if any links don't work, please try again after 3 days.
