Kos

Evo, uspelo mi je obiskat to Grčijo. Ker nisem uspel it na maturantskega, in niti na absolventa, sem moral odpravit to frustracijo(saj vem, da ni isto...).
Strah, da bo letalo padlo dol, je bil odveč, sem misllil da je mnogo hujše. Let ni kaj dosti hujši od vožnje z avtobusom in imam občutek, da bom še veliko krat letel.
Upam pa da, ko bom naslednjič letel, da ne bom spet sedel pri krilu.











Prvi stik s tlemi mi ni bil ravno všeč. Iz klime prideš na 35°C in vse ožgano okoli tebe, zadnji dež je padal nekaj mesecev od tega, nakar se vprašam:" Kaj sem prišel sem delat?"
Drugi stik, ko greš čez IR kamero, kjer te gledajo če imaš vročino. Tri tete z masko čez usta, ti dajo vedet, da gripa je še aktivna in te prav ustraši (nimam nobene fotke baje da se ne sme fotografirat na letališču).




Za razliko od razglednic opaziš, da je otok poleti polpuščava. Morje in plaže pa so pristne.
Je pa res, da en otoček ki je 11km širok in 45km dolg in ima še enkrat več morja kot cela naša mama Slovenija, takrat pozabiš na puščavo in se greš namočit.





Piaggio skuter od izposojevalca Manolisa se je super obnesel, oba z mojo drago sva bila zelo navušena. Čeprav sem bolj oldschool in zagovornik APN4/APN6, moram kar pohvalit skuterje 75km/h z dvema potnikoma in poraba minimalna. Povejte mi, kej boš dobil 'štirko' v Grčiji.
Sam pa so bli časi s 'štirko'! Cel dan 'šraufu', da si prevozil 5km in pol garaže orodja sabo, super avspuhi od 'petke', vse v kromu, s 5 prestavo in neki helikopterju podobnega namesto karburatorja(frgazerja) pa še zmeri ni šlo več kot 70km/h :D



Moja odvisnost od kafeta, me je pripeljala do tega, da sem moral poskusit tudi njihov Greek Coffee. V bistvu je isto kot turška kava, samo da je bilo tako malo tekočega in sam 'zoc' v šalci za espresso. Moja draga je dobila vsaj malo tekočine, medtem ko jaz sem imel tako gosto kavo, da bi jo lahko prodajal za puding.
Živ užaš, in za to te oberejo za 2€ ali več. Capuccino - 2€, fanta 0,33 - 1,5€ mi še zmeraj ne gre v račun.



Isto so pobrali Turkom Kebap in ga prodajajo za Gyros, malo ga preoblečejo in stvar rešena
(enden je nekomu to ukradel lahko, da tudi obratno). Ne vem s kje je Tzatziki, meni je zakon v glavnem, moram zbrskat recept. Grška solata pa mi ni bila ravno čudež. Veliko boljša je solata iz Krete, a kaj ko je tudi tam kuhar pretiraval s feto, saj razumem, da je to vaš nacionalni čudež, samo ne je naložit toliko, da je je več kot zelenjave.
Na nihovo hrano bi se lahko kar navadil, vse je zelo okusno.








Šok vsekh šokov, dobiš dober hotel vse vredu, prižgeš TV, tipkaš po daljincu BBC, CNN,
Italia 1,... in na 16 šok TVS1 in Helena Blagne, ki prepeva na veliko z Nacetom Junkarejem. Sem se že ustrašil da bom mogel plačevat TV naročnino še v Grčiji.

Meni je bilo zakon, lahko mi je žal, da nisem šel že prej, zdaj pa novim destinacijam naproti!

I did it, I visited Greece! Because I hadn’t gone to the high school journey, neither the
faculty journey, I just had to get rid of this frustration.

I must admit that I was afraid of flying, but normally the flight went OK. Flying on a plane is like traveling with the bus.
From now I have the feeling that I'm going to fly a lot and hope I'm not going to sit near the wing.

After landing, the first impression wasn't very promising. It is a big shock to come out from the air-conditioned plane and step in the 35°C overheated country.
The last rain was maybe months ago, so I just asked myself, “What are you doing here?” It was also fairly annoying that there was an IR camera on the airport where masked women were checking if we were contaminated with swine flu.

The main difference between the island and photos of it on postcard is that the island looks like a desert - certainly not the way it is shown on cards. But I have to admit, the sea and the beaches are wonderful.; you just have to love it! It is also true this small island only 11 km width and long only 45km has twice as much sea than our mom Slovenia.

Piaggio scooter that we rented from mister Manolis, did its job well.; my darling and I were very satisfied with it. I grew up with the Tomos APN4 so I was no big fan of scooters, but I have to change my perception of scooters after this experience. The top speed was 75 km/h with two passengers, which isn't bad. I remember the time when I have the APN4(Tomos) all day long screwing the motor bike just to ride 5 km, but it was such a fun. We were pimping the bike with all improvements, but it still didn’t reach a top speed higher than 70km/h.

My addiction to caffeine made me try their Greek coffee. It is almost the same as Turkish coffee, but in my case it was just coffee grounds in an espresso cup with a little liquid so dense they should sell it as pudding. That sucked, and for that they charged us 2€ and for a Fanta just 1,5€! I really can't get it...

The same thing is with Gyros. We couldn't see big differences between Gyros and Kebab; they seem to be stealing recipes from each other. No matter where is it from, however, Tzatziki is amazing, and I must find the recipe. I was not impressed by Greek salad; Crete's salad is much better. The only problem was that the chef put more feta cheese than salad in the plate. Yes, I know that Feta is your national miracle, but do not exaggerate! I must admit, however, that I could get used to their food, because everything is very tasteful.

It was very shocking when I was searching for channels on TV, BBC, CNN, Italia 1 and then TVS1 and Helena Blagne singing with Nace Junkar! I can't believe it, our two national singer heroes on television in Greece. Instantly I become afraid of being charged of our national TV tax while there...

This holiday trip was amazing. I regret not going there before. And now I’m ready for new destinations.
