Sunday afternoon we spend some wonderful hours walking through the town of Skopelos with a great group of people who continue the tradition of the wedding/Οι καλές” The musicians played their hearts out and many people sang along with great passion. In the streets people came out of their houses and offered drinks, rice pudding , meatballs and other specialities to the crowd. It was great to see that traditions can be upheld when people make an effort. The folklore and cultural association plays a big role in that and we hope they will stay strong and united for many more years!

M

M. is a long time friend who I have helped in the past. She never learned english so I help her when she needs to translate, edit of write something. She is full of energy and never sits still. She has a great family with three wonderful sons. She and her husband have a very big herd of goats. The herd provides them with milk and meat. With the milk they make their own cheese which they sell.

Yesterday she asked me for a favor and in return she provided me with 4,5 liters of goat milk. My husband had complained that during the carnival period he hadn’t eaten rice pudding yet. It is carnival after all for two more days and you are “supposed” to make some. Last night I boiled the goat milk and this morning I made the rice pudding. Slowly slowly, it took me 1,5 hours. I hope it is tasty. I love it when you help somebody and your reward is like a gift. Thanks M!

Some of the “Τρατες” that were thrown into the sea have landed on the town beach again due to the stormy weather we had yesterday. Today is a better day without rain but with wind.
