A lot going on
Well, there has been a lot going on around here over the past few days. On Saturday alone, The Olive Tree raised money for the high school with their Royal Wedding festivities. Meanwhile, the TV was also on outside Lefteris kafeneion, and later there was some important football match (not sure what happened there), and after that, also at Lefteris’, there was ‘Symi Rocks’, live guitar music from a local resident, Steve. Sunday night is when they show the world cinema that The Symi Gallery organises, so it’s still rocking and (the cameras are) rolling in the village.
Paddington wanted to watch the wedding
Meanwhile, in my inner world as it were, I have been invited to the awards ceremony for the London Greek Film Festival which will be held in Athens at the end of June – so after I post this, I will be investigating boats and hotels. This will be to collect the award with Rebecca Hall, the author of ‘Girl Gone Greek’ on which we based the, now, award-winning screenplay. That’s exciting enough, but added to that is a trip to the yUK which, given my feeling towards the current state of the country, I’d usually be avoiding at all costs. However, a great friend from school will be in London at the end of July, and it could be the only time we get to see each other. He lives in New Zealand now but is coming over with his family to see relatives, and we’ve booked a day together in London. I just have to turn up which, from here, is never that easy.
