Visiting Old Friends

Παλαιόκαστρο peninsula



On Easter Sunday many people visit with old friends. So do I - took the repaired bicycle on a ride to the Παλαιόκαστρο (paleokastro, "old castle") peninsula near the village of Plaka, on the north east corner of Limnos. Nearly spat my lungs out in the process, Athens city life turned me soft.

Now I'm sitting here, enjoying the view. There is sea on three sides around me. It's like sitting in the front of a big ship. In the distance I see the island of Samothraki.Over to my left I can see the cape with the lighthouse that is the northeast "end" of Limnos. I've been there too by bicycle, but that must have been some eons ago.

The wind is a bit chilly and the sea is really not warm enough to swim. I'll just have a rest, enjoy the scenery and the sound of the waves. Still have to get back home over the hill, so I'll take my time.

I took some pictures to stitch a panorama, but I doubt that it can catch the moment.

Re: Visiting Old Friends - Would like to find out about someone.

I am from Mumbai, India. I am searching for a woman named Lila Patrineli (well, that was her name about 22 years ago) who used to be my pen friend. We lost contact at that time as we grew up and went on about our careers. Sir, is there some way that I can resume my contact with her. Her address in Athens at that time was Lila Patrineli, Athansou Diakou, Kifisia, Athens, Greece. She had a brother (elder) who used to study in Italy.

Is it possible to please help me find her? I would love to resume contact with her. We used to communicate through post but now in the age of internet, I would like to communicate on e mail. My e mail id is "brm_71@rediffmail.com"

I would be thankful if you could somehow do that for me.

She must be around 35 years now.

Thanks,
Bala.

Correction to my post:
The island in the distance is of
course Imvros, not Samothraki.

Also I made it back alive. :-)

Καλημέρα Sascha! Χρόνια Πολλά και Χριστός Ανέστη! Χαίρομαι που περνάς καλά στη Λήμνο, θα καθήσεις μέρες εκεί? Χαιρετισμούς και ευχές και καλή Πρωτομαγιά, Μαριαλένα ;-}

Καλημέρα Μαριαλένα! Χρόνια Πολλά και σε σένα! Έφτασα στην Αθήνα πάλι σήμερα το πρωί. Πέρασα πολύ καλά, αλλά πολύ ταλαιπωρία τα ταξίδια. Η εντυπώσεις το αξίζουν όμως.
