Weather in London can be quite tricky, you never know when it’s going to rain! Τhe predictions cannot be trusted, one moment it may say that it’s going to be sunny, and another that it’s gonna rain like hell! And this is what happened last Friday.
This year I’ve been to Paros for my summer holidays. I went with my Spanish friend Cirma and a Spanish friend of hers, whom I met for the first time there. The girls have never been in Greece before so I thought of going to Paros, as I consider it a typical Cycladic island, which combines really nice beaches and picturesque villages. It is also close to Athens (four hours with the boat) and not very big, you can see the whole island in 5-6 days. We arrived on a Saturday morning and we left on Thursday evening, which means that we had almost 6 full days to make the most out of it!
So, on Tuesday I made a really tasty and fresh salad with beetroots. It is a very traditional dish in Greece and I first ate it in a Christmas family dinner many years ago. My aunt Aspa made it and since then it occupies a space in our Christmas table. Even last Christmas (I didn’t give you my heart, don’t get excited!) that my mum and I were in Spain, we still got to eat it! We were invited in a Spanish family dinner and I thought of making it, so that we didn’t go empty-handed. And I made it and put as much garlic as I would if I was in Greece (we love garlic!), and my mum told me “Don’t put so much, they are not going to eat it!”, but I put! And they ate it!
So, I first heard this song in the opening credits of the series ‘Big Little Lies‘. I felt as if my mind was instantly cleared from all bad thoughts and felt so peaceful. It was not only the music though but also the beautiful shots that made my mind travel to beautiful beaches, forests, my village, me holding a mug of coffee and looking at the view from our balcony (such a nice view!). You can find the opening credits here (please let me know if you feel the same!).
