25th of March is...

...a national holiday for Greece. Celebrating the revolution of 1821 when Greeks broke free from 400 years of Turkish rule. So we parade. (we = students)

This year I went to see the local parade after...dunno how many years - mainly because it is on a Sunday and after the age of 18(?) I failed to wake up on time.

Anyways, yesterday I did. I must say, quite a few things have changed since I was a part of this. The length of skirts for one, not to mention the state of teenage boys (parading in a ...hood? shirts out?)
This was always my favourite part: leaving with best mate.
Oh, on the 25th, we eat fish (this is what's left of mine, I've been good)
In the afternoon I popped in for a beer at my local, decorated totally in line with today's spirit. Just like a classroom, minus Elvis on the wall and alcohol at hand:) I'm getting older...

Holidays are great! Especially when they involve food.
