Grčka: Dojmovi


Nakon onoga što je nalikovalo skakanju iz jedne u drugu državu (5 država za 6 dana), nastojali smo zadržati se više dana u jednoj te istoj državi – kao što je to sada u Grčkoj.

Trenutno smo stigli u grad Komin u sjeveroistočnom kutu države, gdje se susreću Grčka, Turska i Bugarska što čini jednu interesantnu mješavinu naroda i kultura i gdje iščekujemo kasniji ulazak u Tursku.

To nam daje vremena za prisjetiti se dojmova o trenucima koje smo ovdje doživjeli.

Prije svega ovdje smo doživjeli sve vremenske promjene. Od ledenih noći do vrućih sunčanih dana ali i onih dana kada je samo lila kiša koja bi vas namočila do kože. Na sreću niko se nije razbolio… skoro. Darko je po svoj prilici dobio ozbiljne stomačne probleme, što ga je za jedan dan izbacilo iz pogona, tako da je taj dan morao do slijedećeg odredišta koristiti taksi .

Pitali smo se gdje su nestali svi ti Grci…?

U Albaniji se činilo da su ljudi posvuda dok su ovdje ceste često potpuno prazne, izuzevši s vremena na vrijeme pokoji atumobil u prolazu .

Manja mjesta često su napučena divljim psima koji su izgleda posebno zaljubljeni u napuštene benzinske crpke. Uglavnom samo laju na nas ali u dva navrata bilo je jako blizu uličnog obaračuna, mi ili oni…
Jedne prilike pas je ugrizom napravio rupu na mojoj torbi.

Shvatili smo zbog čega se ljudi više ne žele šetati ulicama naselja, ovaj problem sa psima lutalicama je ozbiljan znak Grčke krize.

Grčka je još uvijek divna zemlja sa puno ljudi topla srca. Poput drage gospođe u slastičarnoj od koje smo kupili kolača dovojlno za orgiju predoziranja šećerom, ili blagog vlasnika malog restorana -svratišta uz plažu, gdje smo se odmorili nakon kupanja u Egejskom moru.

Priroda i veličanstveni krajolik na vas djeluju kao da ih sanjate.

Kada je napustimo, nedostajaće mi ljudi i grčki krajolici, … dok sa psima to baš i nije slučaj.

Impressions from Greece.

After something the felt like jumping from country to country ( 5 countries within 6 days)

Then we have now tried what it is to stay longer in the same country for days – as we have now in Greece.  We are currently landed in the town Komintin up in the north eastern corner where Greece meets with Turkey and Bulgaria which creates an interesting mix of people and culture, and where we await to enter in Turkey later.

This gives time for looking backwards and have reflexions about the times we spend here.

first of all we have had almost all types of weather. From freezing cold nights to hot baking sunny days. But also days with nothing but pouring rain, that wet you through your clothes to your skin. Fortunately no one got sick by this….or almost. Darko seem to got a serious stomach infection, which knocked him out for one day, where he had to take a taxi until the next destination.

We have been wondering where all the people in Greece have gone…?

In Albania there seemed to be people all around, but here the streets are often completely empty besides some cars passing by once in a while.

The smaller towns are often being inhabitated by wild dogs who especially seem to have a crush on abandoned gas stations. Mostly they just bark at us, but in two situations it was close to end up in a streetwar with them and us. In one situation, a dog jumped up and bite a hole in my bag.

Suddenly we understood why people dont want to walk around in the village streets no more, and this problem with streetdogs is a serious sign of the cricis in Greece.

But Greece is still a beautiful country with many nice and warm hearted people. Like the sweet cookie lady we met and from whom we bought enough cookies to make an orgie of sugardrugs – to the mild owner of a small restaurant and accomodation place near the beach, where we rested after taking a swim in the Aegean Sea.

And the nature and the magnificient landscapes are still able to make you dream.

I will miss the people and the landscapes of Greece, when we leave….but the dogs I can leave behind without feeling sad.
