Greetings from Portland, Oregon, USA
We don't have any photos of the clear but cold weather here. So here is one of our son's Over 30 soccer team(he is the goalkeeper in the red hat). The temperture was below freezing and there were high winds substantially affecting the play. This was the league championship match which they lost, probably because most of the family spent the first half at a nearby Starbucks.
Obviously it will be difficult to blog about life on Paros as we spend the next 6 weeks in Oregon. But do check in once in awhile as I do have some material to post.
In the meantime here is a flash announcement for anyone traveling through Piraeus this winter. The Express 96 bus to and from the airport has changed stop locations. Last Friday morning about 1 A.M. Karin and I were rather shocked to walk from the ferry to the bus stop and find it obviously gone. There was a small sign in Greek that we couldn't understand so we decided to check out the next bus stop. Sure enough with the help of another bus driver's pointing finger we found the new location. It is easier to get to so if you are there just ask around.
