Thank you for all the kind words and I also send congratulations to Tiz, Clareand Alison for their new stars. As has been said before, they certainly deserve them.
Sooz - Come along to the Kafeneion and give it a go. We've all been at the stage where you never think you're going to break through the "can't-understand-what-they-are-saying" barrier. You sometimes think that you'll never get through to the other side, don't you? All I can say is - it is worth it in the end.
Anyway, you know how generous Greeks are! The ones you meet will be more than happy that you are making the effort. They won't worry about a couple of mistakes!
