Greeks celebrate run up to Lent

In the run up to Lent there are a kinds of festivals and celebrations in Greece, usually accompanied by some delicious dish. Tsiknopempti or "Ash Thursday" was no exception as the country turns into a huge barbecue pit and people gorge themselves on soulaki, sausages and steaks all liberally washed down with ouzo, retsina or wine. As this is also the carnival season people need little excuse to put on fancy dress and head for a party often held in the streets.

Hey Bolly
My name is Joe Pinzone and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Greece and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 1-2 years or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. I wanted to know if you could help spread the word to expats living there or are close to moving. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at Looking forward to hearing from you.
