At the risk of abasing myself (like I haven’t done that five or ten or a million times), I’m writing what I guess amounts to as a “brag” post about my kid. I’m sorry. It makes me sick too when parents go on endlessly about their kids. We can only hope that it turns out to be a little more than that.
My kid is living this summer in Greece. To be more specific she’s living in Pachia Ammos on the island of Crete. This is one of those ridiculously idyllic picturesque Greek towns that we’ve either visited or seen in magazines and movies that make us all wonder why the hell we live where we do. It’s a tiny town of some 400 people, without a Pharmacia or an ATM but in perfect Greek symmetry, has two Tavernas and a couple of small hotels.
