What I am looking from my window.

This post is dedicated to Kris.
Every morning when I open my window
I see my house's garden.
Let my explain you some things about my house:
I live on the second floor,my parents live
on the first floor and my grandmother on the groundfloor.
Are you suprised?
In Greece we usually live near our parents.
The ground floor as well as this garden,
they are constracted in 1954 by my grandfather,
it was the 5th house of Peristeri
-now Peristeri is one of the most
populate areas of Athens.

Exuberant garden of Eden you have, Selana. I like the spiral staircase very much too. Lucky you for having such beautiful house in the company of your parents and granma.

what a lovely view and a garden, i'm not sure about living with parents although in my country it's very common too to live with the parents, somehow i was always very independent.

Now this is really interesting, especially in the light of your comments about family housing. Thank you very much for this great insight into Greek ways of life.
