It was 10.45am when I wake up. Mehmet is to work, I have not noticed. The refrigerator is nearly empty, it is time for the replenishment. Fortunately, the supermarket is across the street and so it's easily done. Mehmet comes home, and we go immediately to his mother, she will enjoy us this afternoon. We're going to Xanthi, I've heard a lot about, so wonder if the city is really special. It is cold and there is a fresh wind, but fortunately it was dry and the sun can be seen occasionally.
We drive along the coast and stop at Mesi beach. It is quiet, but in summer it is pleasantly crowded. In the summer it is the country house of the family and they spend much time here. Here I would be able to spend the summer, it exudes cosiness and rest. We leave Mesi beach and go on towards Xanthi. En route we stop at Fanari beach and Fanari village.
Mehmet is drinking beer with cola and lemon!!
The next photo stop is Porto Pedi, an oasis of calm! a long ramp leads me to a small church in the water. The gate is closed and I can not come closer. Too bad, it looks so idyllic, and i would like to see it inside. But we must go, Mehmet knows a nice place where we will lunch. We drive to the mountains of Xanthi and stop at restaurant Arnandoma. It is beautifully situated with a breathtaking view. We go inside and use an extensive and delicious lunch. Steak, mushrooms, saganaki, chicken with mushroom saus, fish, eggplant, fries, garlic bread and salad.
I could not believe my eyes, Mehmet drank beer, mixed it with Cola and lemon! I laughed but it did shake me, this mix. Mehmet looked at me and asked, what is ! I had nothing to say, he saw it in my face and started laughing hard. Do you want it , no thanks, I'd rather stay healthy was my answer. I know he loves lemon, in everything he is eating is lemon, but now also in all his drinks, stange guy, but a funny one!
The time passed quickly, we did not have much time left and the visiting Xanthi was only a city tour.
It is an old city with typical houses, facades and pretty much history. We would return later in the week to see more of this place.
On the way back we where making a stop in the mountains and Mehmet takes me with him, we climb over rocks and come to the Byzantine bridge, located near Poliantos village. A truly beautiful setting and a perfect photo stop. Back to Komotini
, we first bring his mother home and then we went to the mall, we go bowling. It would be an unforgettable evening, because there was only 1 winner! (me), so memorable. If there's a winner, there is also a loser, MEHMET, also memorable! (Sorry my friend)!! But we had a great evening, filled with a lot of fun!!
We went home, and i had a big smile the whole evening!!
Even now people say to me, Jan you look so happy!
