Thanks Arkadias, so sad but it's still very bad here i can't even go from Sparta to Tripoli as the roads are closed due to fires, what a mess, a few EU countries are here to help out, but the only way to stop it now is if the big man upstairs unleashes a pretty nice rain fall.

I'm so happy to hear from you again, my friend!! I was deeply concerned this morningwhen Iread thatthe flames surrounded almost half the peninsula and almost reached Athens killing 51 people, even catching people in their cars

I gather that many houses which were in the country were badly damaged.Hope your house and your belowed ones ascaped this catastrophe...I also heard in the morning news on the radio that The Red Crescentof Turkeywas ready with equipment, medical personnel and whatever else was necessaryfor the aid! The dimension of this fire should be much much more than we can imagine I guess. The Greek government announced 3-day-national lament !

Looking forward to hearing and seeing!! from you,as soon asyou are convinient, of course!

Thanks Arkadias, yes i just heard after i posted today that The Red Crescent is readyalot of houses were burnt but it's hard to destroy a house that's made of brick, but peoples properties destroyed and worst people being killed, they found a mother with her arms wrapped around her children burnt to death:sad:so far the fire doesn't look like it's coming here to the Village, but it's pretty strange that people have devises starting the fires all over with the cell phonesthanks again my friend

Thanks Alex. we are fine, but why this is happening is mind blowing, but it's those few that need to be punished and i don't mean slapped in the hand, thanks again my friend.
