Saying goodbye leaves a bitter taste in your mouth !
We always use the hashtag #thebestjobintheworld (the best job in the world) to express how happy we are with our job!
What we don’t say is how difficult it is to part with people with whom you share so much!
You meet them at the LOOK AND SEE, before they make up their minds to move here, you see them loosen up and relax, as they get into the greek way of life, you spend time and holidays and tours and meals and loooooong discussions…..and so much more with them….
And then, one day you part with them! And they leave holes in your life.
We always hope that they will come back – and a lot of them do!
Some French students of mine told me their motto, which they borrowed from a Greek writer, they couldn’t remember his name:
Μένω στο Παρίσι, αλλά ζω στην Ελλάδα ! ( I stay in Paris, but I live in Greece)
