In more than eight months of living in Thessaloniki and attending Tandem almost weekly, I can say that I’ve met quite a lot of people there. People with amazing life stories, people from all over the world, travellers, students, professionals and so on. This story is however not about someone that I’ve met in Tandem, but about someone that I’ve met in front of Bord de l’eau. This person had an amazing life story, but I’ll talk rather about the life lesson that I learned that evening.
We all know it. For some men is just that day during the year in which they need to give flowers to their partners, mothers, aunts and so on. And you know that if you don’t do it, or simply forget about it, well… may the God be with you! But where does it come from and what does it mean, exactly?
