where am i?

Who are all these people walking around like zombies on speed? I hear yelling and cars are driving by with their horns screaming. There is a water fountain and a bunch of people are trying to cool themselves. The temperature keeps rising. It is meant to go up to 36C (96F) but it always gets hotter than what they predict. I am in Greece! I am here for holidays with my family and oh my is it hot! I am too used to the British climate and all this heat is making me tired. All I want to do is sleep.

I have been absent from the blog-world recently because I was all over the place. I spent last week seeing my friends and travelling to London and back. I had very little energy to blog when I got home and I haven’t caught up with other feeds in days.

I decided to come to Greece mostly because I want to spend as much time with my mum as possible. She is still very fragile, very swollen and taking medications with weird names but that is not what scares me. What scares me is how different she looks. She looks more alive than ever but her shaved head and the scars look unreal. She looks older in the way she moves and her hands shake. She wears a head scarf to protect herself. She is doing okay though, she can’t do much around the house. She is expected to fully recover though, according to the doctor. But it will take time.

In other news, today I will be going to see Linkin Park live! I have been a big fan of theirs since they first appeared and somehow I always managed to miss them when they played in the UK. Who would have thought I’d finally manage to see them live in Greece? Now, how I’m going to deal with going to a concert when it’s so hot out there, I don’t know. I’ll figure that out when the time comes.

  1. I LUFF Linkin Park!!! Absolutely love them!!! I really like their latest single, Shadow of the Day. Have a GREAT time at the concert!!!!

    I’m glad you decided to spend some time with mum. I’m sure having you there helps her feel better. 🙂

  2. I used to haaaaate the heat but then I lived in Spain and got used to it. Since I have been back in the UK I have gone back to my pasty white shade loving self lol

    Hope you had a fab time over there!

  3. Sodapop :: They played Shadow of the day too but it’s not one of my favourites. I still like it though. They were awesome!

    Heather :: Thanks, I intend to have as much fun as possible this summer. At least until the results come out.

    Debbie :: I don’t tan much anyway and I prefer not to be in the sun too long because it’s not healthy (yes, I’m paranoid like that). I suppose by the end of the summer I’ll be used to the heat and once I get back to Brighton I’ll be cold. Thanks and by the way, I’m still in Greece and will be here for most of the summer. Still planning everything though so I don’t which other places I’ll be visiting while here.
