Personally Speaking – Thank You!

by Silvia Lubitz, August 1998
Paros - A Good Choice For a Home!

One month ago, because of a serious accident, I had to take my husband urgently to Athens. It did not take long for this news to spread. When I returned to Paros alone two days later, not only was I met at the port, but I also received offers of help every day. The kind concern shown by those I work with, hoteliers, friends and family made me feel less lonely while my husband was kept in Athens.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to all those people who gave me support, but especially to the public health centre who took such good care of my husband and to Dr. Eleni Poppori in particular. She accompanied us to Athens, organised everything and, even after 36 hours on duty, helped us through this difficult situation by her calm efficiency.

After this experience I shall never forget how much I gain by living on this island. Although occasionally I still find myself thinking that the system should work as I am used to in my own country, more importantly, I know that if I do not lose my smile, I can still open all the doors and that the human touch makes all the difference.

Many thanks to all the inhabitants of Paros who smiled on me during this time without my husband. Isn’t this what we mean when we say we are “searching for our island”?
