Life lesson: things aren't always as they seem

Tandem Stories: The life lesson

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.

A few days ago, on April the 23rd, we were celebrating the World Book Day. This day was designed by UNESCO to celebrate reading in any form – from books and their authors to bookstores, libraries and other places that help with the distribution of this medium. To contribute to this occasion, we went to explore a special book presentation at the Babylonia cultural center where Dimitris Iconomou published his new creation called “Με λένε Γιώργο” (My name is Giorgio).
