A Few New Funny Memes!

I've been busy coming up with new funny memes for my Growing up Greek American page on Facebook. Old memories and new ones keep popping up in my head of growing up in a Greek family. Here are some of the ones I've made.

Village Walkthrough- Kosmadei

The village Kosmadei is about 12 kilometers from the city of Karlovasi. I visited this village back in December on my birthday. On the way there, I came upon another village, Nikoloudes which I had no idea existed. I guess I didn't see the sign below very clearly because as I was coming up on Nikoloudes, I actually thought it was Kosmadei, and was a bit upset Kosmadei was even further up the mountain, another 2 kilometers to be exact. I almost turned around to go back to Karlovasi because it was getting late, but I'm glad I didn't, because I don't know if I'd ever have the chance to come back. Kosmadei gets it's name from an inhabitant of Kastania, by the name of Kosmas. It is about 600 meters above sea level.

                                                     The drive up was really pretty!

                                                                     A lovely stream.

                     I came upon this church, but I couldn't get a name. That's the  grave of an old priest.

                        Way up in the mountains. See the arrow? That's the church pictured above.

                                                  Kosmadaioi, Kosmadei same thing!

                                                                Look at that windy road!

                                      The amazing view of Karlovasi from the parking lot.

                                              The village's church. Sorry didn't get a name.

At one point a little old lady came out of her house to see who I was... She then yelled to her   husband, "she's just a xeni!" (visitor)

                                                                   Oooh, I like this one!

                                                                         A 2 for 1?

                                                                The elementary school

                           This nice lady let me take a picture! So there you go... Kosmadei Village!
