Away from Athens...

...well, not too far...about 2 hours away with a ferry. But in a completely different scenery. At my grandma's house, in a quiet village.

I've been here for 4 days and I love it so much! It is exactly what I needed...I'm so relaxed. Finally, I get to breathe some oxygen and eat some really fresh food! Like seriously fresh. My grandpa brings vegetables from his landfield or we can pick fruits and vegetables from my granny's little garden and eat them straight. We slowly chew them and get the most of their energy. Isn't that great?

My granma also has chickens, turkeys and a pig. I don't eat meat, I'm a vegan.  Have I mentioned that before? No? Well, I'm planning to make a post about me and my son being vegan soon. Anyway, about the chickens, I wouldn't eat them of course, but I eat some eggs now and then. I only eat my grandma's chickens' eggs when I'm here. I don't really trust commercial eggs, even if they sell them as bio and as from grazing chickens. Although I love eggs, I choose to eat them only once in a while and just my granma's chickens' eggs because I know she treats them with respect, they always have access to fresh food and water and live in a huge coop.

But, enough with the food. My baby loves it here, too. I take him to see the chickens, turkeys and the piggy every morning and noon. He made an 18 month old friend, Kostas, and they play together sometimes. Actually, it's more like Kostas gathering every toy is around and won't let anything for my baby to play with. That's so funny. He once pulled my son's hair...his reaction? He cried a bit, but didn't seem to understand what really happened! I can't believe he's already in this stage. ''Playing'' with other kids and ''fight'', too. I have to think what my reaction should be when babies ''fight''. I want him to be polite and share his toys. I guess he's too young for this, but you know, they grow so fast! Anyway, I let him crawl inside the house or outside and he is always dirty. He's trying to catch cats. He is grabbing grapes of the vineyard and trying to eat them. He tastes leaves and branches he finds around the yard. We put him on a basket and drag him around. My aunt brought her nephew's baby walker and we putted him in it yesterday but he won't stay in there for more than two minutes (thank you universe...I'm so against using walkers). He has become a true village baby. So wild and so dirty! I have no idea how things will be back in Athens, in an apartment.

We're having so much fun here...I don't want to go back!!
