celebrating in Vamos

from our balcony.  view of Lefka Ori (White Mountains)

today is the Oxi Day celebration, description in previous post.  this is an important holiday all
over Greece, and in our village with church bells and chanting by the priest before the marching takes off up the main street to the village square where there is a ceremony and speeches.  we didn't go
up there for that part of it.  just watched the parading part.

getting the littles organized was like herding cats.  the 2 who wore traditional outfits got to walk
at the front of their group.  lots of moms and teachers helping here!

  then the bigger kids
    and the drummers
