Martis or Martia

 


Dearest friends,

This little bracelet is called MARTIS or MARTIA and mothers used to make it for their children-now we make it ourselves-to protect them from the first hot sun of spring.

The MARTIS bracelet custom dates back into time, as you can imagine-everything here does, right? – and was found in the Elefsinian rituals, Its name was KROKI and it was a bracelet worn by the priestesses of the temple in Elefsina around their right hand and left foot.

You are supposed to wear it during the whole month and then, when the first swallows are back, you hang it on your rose bushes so that the swallows take them to build their nests.
If you don’t have rose bushes, hang it somewhere for the swallows to see.

Do you like mine ? 

An Ancient Greek eye on Meteorology

To everyone’s delight, the Αlkyonides days have come again this year!

We can see you wondering: the what???

The alkyonides days, the days of spring in the heart of winter. These days usually last from 15 December to 15 February and they visit Greece every year, with few exceptions,  ie. 1947.

Do you know the myth about them? Alkyoni was  daughter of Aiolos, God of the winds,  and was married to Kiykos. They were so happily married and so much in love that they called each other Zeus and Hera. The real Zeus and Hera felt deeply offended by the sacrilege and decided to punish them severely. So they transformed Kiykos into a bird, a vulcher. Alkyoni searched for her beloved husband everywhere, but couldn’t find him anywhere. She cried and cried until the Gods decided to transform her into a bird as well,  alkyoni. The problem was that alkyoni is the only sea-bird that lays and hatches its eggs in mid-winter. As a result of that, the waves carried them away and she was left in despair. The gods then, touched by her misfortune and misery, decided to cease the bad weather for two weeks to give alkyoni time to reproduce.  So,  as we can all see, there are some days of spring in the heart of winter which give us the opportunity to … hatch our eggs, take them out in the sunshine, admire them as they are riding their bikes while we are enjoying the heightened temperatures for the season.

Greece Launches 112 Emergency Number

 

Greece’s General Secretariat for Civil Protection launched this week the single European emergency 112 phone number, which operates on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week and aims to warn residents and visitors of potential dangers, including wildfires.

Currently in pilot phase operating out of two crisis management centers, the European emergency number program will run through to year’s end via SMS messaging with authorities set to announce its full implementation – to also include Advanced Mobile Location (AML) technology to receive location information from mobile phones (already in application elsewhere in Europe) – in the coming period.

At the same time, the Civil Protection authority will be launching an awareness-raising campaign on ways to link up via app to the warning HQs.

Hundreds of visitors to Greece and locals received warning messages over the weekend in view of high risk of forest fires.

It should be noted that citizens and visitors can and should call (for free) 112 for help or in case of emergency as well as to report fires.

The 112 number can be dialed for free in any EU country to contact emergency services.

Speaking on SKAI television, Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis confirmed that the 112 program will be finalized and in full application by the beginning of next year, adding that once completed it will be able to send messages to all phones. Currently, the system cannot offer Cell Broadcast – ie sending messages to multiple mobile telephone users in a defined area at the same time.

Commentaires de nos amis Francophones

Kalispera,
Merci beaucoup pour cette très belle journée.
Nous sommes sur les genoux mais le cœur plein de bonheur et de très bons souvenirs.
Si tous les Grecs sont comme vous, gentils, souriants et évidemment très professionnels, votre pays doit être un avant goût des champs Élysées
Bisous
Muriel, Mario, Andrea, Rafaele et Antonella

 

Merci beaucoup Katerina pour cette journée magique. Tu nous as fait découvrir des endroits magnifiques, et partager ton amour pour cette belle ville d Athènes. Bonne continuation. Jerome

 

Catherine parle d’or. L’histoire n’est plus. On vit avec elle le passé au présent et le présent au
passé : des heures anciennes au siècle de Périclès, puis des passages des romains aux
ambitions d’Hadrien, des siècles où Athènes s’endort à ceux où elle se rebiffe, des années où
on l’humilie à celles où elle se reconstruit. On suit Catherine en pleine confiance dans les
ruelles qui remontent vers les murailles : en pénétrant les jardins secrets et les maisons
modestes des bâtisseurs du quartier de Plaka ; en apostrophant les moines souriants d’un
minuscule couvent caché sous les figuiers ; en débusquant au coin des rues et au pied des
murs fresques et pierres oubliées de la grande histoire ; en distinguant les musiques grecques
les unes des autres. On en oublie la grande ville blanche qui s’étire à nos pieds jusqu’à la mer.
Le charme que Catherine veut et arrive à nous faire partager, c’est le charme de l’inattendu, du
paradoxal. Quelque chose de différent du codé et de l’organisé. Quelque chose qui a la logique
de l’illogique : celle d’une démocratie qui se construit en 1830 par exemple en demandant un roi
pour la mettre en œuvre, celle de répondre à l’urgence en optant pour le temps long, celle de
dire oui en affichant un geste de dénégation, celle de donner à un chocolat le nom d’un tyran :Leonidas

Pascal.

Bonjour Catharina,
Je me fais l’écho des réaction des 15 personnes de mon groupe: tous étaient très satisfaits de leur séjour en Grèce,ils ont beaucoup appréciés le programme et l’organisations des visites des sites archéologiques.
 Votre disponibilité ,votre sens de l’organisation,votre connaissance de la ville, mais aussi votre personnalité attachante, enthousiaste chaleureuse ont largement contribué à la réussite de notre visite découverte d’Athènes.
  Je suis rentré en France avec le désir de retourner en Grèce et je suis prés à recommander votre organisme à toute personne qui souhaite visiter la ville avec un petit groupe.
J’aurai grand plaisir à vous rencontre à nouveau soit à Athènes, soit si vous veniez en visite dans l”Est de  la France.
Cordialement, Christian

Salut Katerina,

“Partagez notre amour pour Athènes”
Notre tour “Partagez notre amour pour Athènes” est très prisé chez nos clients, leurs proches, amis ou invités.

Ça se passe au centre historique d’ Athènes, à Plaka, à Psiri, à Monastiraki et les quartiers autour avec leurs petits secrets, leurs monuments et vues uniques, leurs petites chapelles et bien sûr on se régale en goûtant des spécialités locales dans le vieux marché…
On s’amuse à faire de petites pauses pour un café ou un rafraîchissement, pour un snack, une dégustation ou déjeuner sur des terrasses-jardins et des lieux que peu connaissent.
Dans le prix ne sont pas inclus les cafés, les rafraîchissements, le repas ou le vin ou bien les entées aux sites qu’on visite.
Pour tout dire, c’est un tour coupé sur mesure, on s’ adapte alors, volontiers, aux intérêts, aux goûts, aux suggestions ou les préférences de nos groupes.

Vehicle restrictions lifted in central Athens

Source: http://www.ekathimerini.com

 

 

 There will be no restrictions on vehicles entering central Athens as of Friday and through September 29, the Traffic Police said Thursday.

The restrictions are enforced every year and are designed to reduce traffic congestion in downtown Athens.

According to the system, vehicles with license plates ending in even numbers can only enter the downtown area on even days, while those ending in odd numbers can do so on odd days.

Restrictions are lifted as the number of cars circulating in the city drops due to the start of the peak summer holiday period.

“Hola Katerina and Aristotelis
Katerina and Aristotelis were recommended to our family to plan our holiday in Greece.  We traveled to Athens because it was our son’s dream vacation. Since our initial email we received precise and timely information on places to visit based on our request. Katerina and Aristotelis took personal ownership and treated us as family.  From the “Sharing the Athens we Love” Walking Tour in Athens, restaurants, and constant communication to make sure our needs were being met. The tour guides Katerina selected were wonderful, we are especially impressed with Ms. Angeliki who is a college professor and took us on a one on one walking tour to the Archeological Museum and the Acropolis.

The highlight of our holiday was the driver, Dimitri.  He took personal ownership and we especially appreciate the non-tourist locations (Planeterio & Lebadeia) and restaurants we visited.

It was a well-balanced schedule and there’s no way to beat our last day in Greece; a trip to the Poseidon Temple to enjoy another wonderful Greek sunset prior heading to the airport.  Thank you !”

Warm regards, Jeanne & Tom
