Your donkey is eating my vegetables


We’ve lived here for 3 years now and our grasp of the Greek language is coming along, although very slowly. In a taverna or restaurant we can order all of our food and drink in pretty good Greek, even if I do say so myself. It’s once the conversation turns to other aspects of village life that we start to struggle.

It’s a little late today, but last night we need the Greek for (you guessed)……

“Your donkey is eating my vegetables!”

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
