Over the weekend I plan to post some videos of the dinner held in London last Thursday which was very successful.
I missed the Paddy discussion because I thought it was 1800 EST, not BST. I am so disappointed but hope everyone had a wonderful time talking about him. When I was a Classics major in college and preparing to go to Greece in the summer to travel and then be part of an archaeological dig in Cyprus my ancient Greek teacher did an independent study of modern Greek with me. He also introduced me to Patrick Leigh Fermor and the first of his books that I read was Roumeli. I’ve read most of his books, the biography by Artemis Cooper and I got to see the exhibit of Leigh Fermor, Ghikas and Caxton at the Benaki Museum in Athens in 2017. Not everyone knows about Paddy so I was really looking forward to talking about him with others. Oh well. I hope to hear how it went.
Hi Julie. So sorry that we got confused by time zones. It was lovely for all, but we shall run it again. We’d love to hear more about you and your experiences. That was mainly how it went. Time passed so quickly. Next time please join! Tom
