The Village of the stars
We got the invitation from Tasos, the manager of the festival, to go there and support their work. We didn´t know how great would be the experience, and it was awesome!
We went there on Friday and we noticed how beautiful the village and the area is. Surrounded by mountains, the road trip was amazing. We could breath fresh air and we just enjoyed and felt the power of the nature.
Just the first evening, we had the pleasure to met Alexia, our own greek guide, who is an incredible person. She was all the weekend take care of us. We just have thanks words for her.
When we arrive almost everything was ready in the church´s square for the open night party. Yes, party!! we started the weekend dancing typical greek dances with ours news friends.
The next day, on Saturday, was time to work. But first we enjoyed the best coffee ever in the terrace table of our hostel. The best coffee ever with the best views ever!!
Already in the field, we put the chairs, the tables and everything we needed to have a great night. We also had time to see the sun with the special telescope of our friend.
When the festival started, around 09:00 pm, we were in the entrance with our lovely friend Alexia, helping her with the tickets, give to the people posters, books, etc. Everyone from the village were there and all of them enjoyed the event, under thousands stars.
But the night didn´t finish there. After the Festival, we got an invitation to go to one restaurant where we ate, danced and knew new people. Just the Retsina knows how the night end.
The next morning, on Sunday, and after a strong coffee, we went again to the field to collect all the stuff. After that, we went to the same restaurant as the night before where Veta, the owner, was waiting to give us the best veggie lunch ever with the most fresh vegetables and the tastiest fried zuchini ever. This lady is awesome and after 1 minute talking, we fell in love with her.
It was an amazing weekend for all of us and we just have to say thank you for everyone and for everything and...We are not portuguese!!!
