Ariadne from Greece!
"Ariadne roaming on the lone strand"

I love sunny Sundays even if they are windy.
I had a herbal tea with my company of friends you had met here at a cafe near Methodius and Kyrillos Church. Saints Cyril and Methodius were brothers and missionaries who spoke many languages and transcribed the Slavs'oral alphabet into written form.
It was fun to notice those yellow street lamps near the cafe and a lovely red VW beetle!
Then after lunch I took a Geography lesson. Sometime ago my friend Marabeth from Connecticut,U.S.A. sent me a DVD about the American landscape. This DVD was very informative. In just one hour and with only a couple of minutes for each State it presents the United States each State with its borders, mountains, rivers,lakes,forests etc. It was great to see that some things I knew as Geography had always been my favourite subject at school.Some other info I have learnt via my many sea glass friends in the States. Anyway I know now why most American students don't really know much about the world Geography,they have to learn so much about their own country which compared to my little Greece is huge!Who could believe there is a swamp called Okefenokee?I love that name!
I think that if I could choose to live in one of the States I would love it to be Maine or any of the smaller States all along the Atlantic coast.Michigan appealed to me too. Any landlocked States are not in my favour and I think I wouldn't ever choose to live in Idaho for example!(Sorry folks!)
