About 55 kilometers from Ioannina In the north of Greece, there is a small and magical village, near the border with Albania, called– Delvinaki.

There live, Elena and Nikos, the parents of our friend Sissei.

We spent an amazing day in that village, experiencing paradise, located among the mountains

full of green forests, away from our bustling world.

Elena, Sissie’s mother is an expert in the village’s natural sciences.

Her eyes sparkle like a girl’s eyes.

With a skilled hand, she milks the goats, pasteurizes milk, makes cheeses, and makes glykó tou koutalioú – spoon sweets.

Nikos, Sissie’s father is a teacher and philosopher in life sciences.

His hands grow juicy vegetables and produce Grappa

(an alcoholic drink made from the remains of the grapes left after they are squeezed).

In the evening he pulls out the pen and writes about his life and thoughts.

Vasiliki’s daughter, Alexandra, and Sissie’s son, Yiannis

have a great time in the village and prove to us once again how much children are more attached to nature, than to the screen.

Mel, my husband, practices milking goats – he has a future says Elena, and she pulls out the goat’s udders and milks them skillfully. Mel says he is ready to devote himself to the pastoral atmosphere in the village,  writing books and playing jazz.

Before we were born in the city

We have already forgotten

The taste of the water

In the mountains,

The road that is surrounded

With green forest,

We forgot everything.

While living in high buildings

And honking roads.

We forgot the silence

The Innocence

The little things

Small Words that you can feel

And the time for love.
