The festivals were very good and things are building up nicely towards Easter here (which I have no doubt said a million times, are on May 1st here).
A week or two ago we helped one of Greece's best artists with his exhibition on our island. It was a lovely event and it was a joy to see all of his work. It is called 3D relief art and sculpture. There was quite a collection of peices on display, varying in cost from about €500 to €100,000 !
It is incredible the amount of depth that he achieves with his art. His site is in the process of being built (by me!) and you will find it online in a month or so at www.nikosmarkopoulos.com
Worth a visit!
Because of the help Justine and I gave him throughout the duration of the exhibition, he very kindly gave me one of my favourite peices of his, the sculpture pictured above. It stands about 4ft tall with the base (it has a lamp underneath it) although the actual visible part above is only 1.5ft.
The Weather has been incredible over the last few weeks, so much so that we have had to stay out of the sun a little!
I got good news about the job, all being well I start on April 18th. It will be a shock to the system to start back to work but I am looking forward to it. Also I have had a great few weeks playing poker as I have been in such good form, winning in the region of $800. Hopefully the good form will continue although I will now not be allowed to play on my usual site as that is who my job is with!! I also played a live game for the first time on the island on Saturday night, only 5 runnres but still a lot of fun. Made better by the fact that I won it!
I stated that I will probably start work on the 18th April, that is for training in London of all places. It was either there or Costa Rica but, I hate planes now!
Justine is feeling a lot better after the problems with the hair dye. As a treat we bought here a small scooter so she can get to work and back! (Well, I say we did, actually the compensation did!)
Anyway, that is all for now, I will add more updates soon but we go out to Athens on Sunday for a week (tests to try and find out what Justine was allergic to) and then onto the UK although this is still to be confirmed.
