It seems I am unable to blog more frequently with all the things happening around here! But I decided that this virtual life (the blogging) is not more important than real life and its achievements! So I will be blogging only when I can! Or when there is something important to say!
I still read all the friend's blogs although I am not able to leave as many comments as I used to!
Bytheway thank you for all your comments on my blog. All those who are no-reply bloggers are not answered though!
Anyway about the title of this blogpost!
At the end of July hubby got a call from The Smile of the Child, the biggest organization in Greece for the protection of children.
What they wanted was a volunteer shadow puppetry player who was willing to participate in a competition in Luxembourg in September where the Smile of the Child wanted to present the results of the INTERSYC programme, a cross country programme between Greece and Bulgaria. The competition was going to be held during the INTERREG 25 YEARS convention in Belval, Luxembourg.
To cut a long story short, it was two other puppeteers, friends of ours, who suggested hubby and I would be perfect for this whole thing as hubby is an excellent shadow puppet player with time in his hands and I could do all the interpretation/translation and e-mailing stuff.
And so in between our summer coming and going to the beach house, and my gall bladder surgery, and a kitchen renovation and school starting, hubby had to write a play and I had to answer all kinds of phone calls and e-mails and translate the play and we had to meet people to finalize all the details.
We were not going to be paid for this whole thing but flight tickets, hotel accomodation and all meals would be covered!
So it happened.
We flew out Monday morning,
On Tuesday we attended the convention,
Weatherwise it was winter in Luxembourg and thank God we had winter jackets with us.
The next day since the weather was terrible we couldn't go sightseeing so we simply made our suitcases and returned to Greece.
I guess you know I am afraid of thunderstorms. So we were to fly out of Luxembourg in this small jet and I was trying to take a pic of its propeller
I'd like to thank here Anastasia and Maria from the INTERREG cross border programme and Vasso and Dimitris from the Smile of the Child for the chance they gave us and their cooperation. It was great fun!
