In: from Greece

Eva knows my favourite colour is turquoise. She has sent me turquoise on houses from Morocco recently. And suddenly I am surprised by turquoise in houses from Greece! Well, I already knew since a long time that there are places in Greece (and other Mediterranean countries) with turquoise paint used for houses (doors, window frames, fences), but it's Eva who surprises me. Such a globetrotter, I love that!

These doors, on the Island of Milos, are named 'syrmata' and originally were used to keep boats indoors.

The nice stamp, as far as I can decipher it, must have to do something with the European Maritime Day. In the end of May 2015, there were public days for this Day in the city and harbour of Piraeus.

Thank you very much, ευχαριστώ, Eva!
