As yesterday Frieda was busy attending the TEDx conference we had arranged to meet today.So we met in the morning and since it was a glorious sunny day we walked at the sea front.Here we are in front of Alexander the Great statue.
We decided (well I decided and she was kind to follow) to go and visit the Glass World exhibition at the Thessaloniki Archaeological Museum which I had seen some months ago but loved seeing once again.Some of the old glass vessels found inside ancient Greek tombs in Macedonia and Thrace were amazingly well preserved and restored.(I will make another blog post with photos from the exhibition as there are many.)
We then had some coffee opposite the White Tower and then lunch at Olga, the neighbourhood restaurant where we frequent as it has good homemade food.
Then in the afternoon Frieda came at my home and we enjoyed chatting,had some coffee and she showed me my first steps to crochet! I admit I found it difficult!Maybe I should stick to my cross stitch!
Of course Frieda was very kind to bring me some gifts.A pair of lovely tiny porcelain clogs(Dutch shoes).Frieda is Dutch and has been living in Greece for many years now.She was recently in her hometown in the Netherlands.The sea glass is from her beach on Skiathos island. She also made me a tote bag for my shopping!
