   希腊神话--MG车主万里长征环球行

   欠下了不少功课了,英国车匹夫这几天有点忙,事件很多,加上世界杯的干扰,说干扰也不一定贴切,但发现事物的发展还是有它的规律,虽然国际足联主席布拉特先生希望改变足球的世界格局,奢望让更多的国家,不同地区的球队能够坚持到最好,不希望让世界杯变成欧洲杯,所以乌拉圭的进入四强,还是足以让大家兴奋几天,当然,如果世界上人口最多的国家中国国家队也能打进四强的话,国际足联的可能会更加开心的,这样的世界杯的商业价值将会发展到极致了.

   带着这样的想法,坚持荷兰对乌拉圭的比赛一定要看,还好醒来的时候是一点半,离比赛还有一小时,借这个机会去翻阅澳洲MG车主的万里长征环球行的日记,不好意思,他们已经走得好远,今天将他们在希腊的日记,简单翻译一下与大家分享.

    希腊,文明古国,虽然经济受到冲击,濒临破产,但他的文明和文化,特别是他的神话还是依然浮现在我们的眼前.


8:48 am

到希腊,一个简单的过境,见到了玛丽,以及希腊MG俱乐部会员。"

希腊神话--MG车主万里长征环球行 

Friendly officials at the border and they will even let you take a photo. Greece "友好的官员在边境,他们甚至让你拍照。希腊"

Our new friend Mary  "我们的新朋友玛丽"

The border crossing from Turkey into Greece was notable because of the ease, efficiency and friendliness of the police and customs officers. Only slight hiccup was the validation of our third party insurance policy which was sorted out quickly. No five plus hour crossing but the officials were still armed because it is the major entry point for illegal aliens into the EU; but they were smiling and charming. No sweat here.

"来自土耳其的边界过境点进入希腊是由于显着的难易程度,效率和警察和海关官员的友善。只有轻微的打嗝,是我们的第三方保险验证这是很快整理出来。 5个小时没有加过,但官员们仍武装,因为它是非法移民进入欧盟的主要切入点,但他们和迷人的微笑。这里没有汗水。"

The drive through northern Greece was pleasant with lots of picture post card shots one associates with Greece and good freeways. The cars were running well and after lunch we decided the highways were too boring, so we headed off down some secondary roads and through some smaller towns with Reg and Mary in the lead car role.

"通过希腊北部的驱动器与图片拍摄明信片之一,希腊和良好的高速公路联营很多愉快。所有赛车都运行良好,午饭后,我们决定在公路太无聊,所以我们领导了一些次要道路,并通过与注册和玛丽在一些小城镇带头作用的汽车了。"

Our first night was spent at Kavala at Hotel Philomena overlooking a sweeping valley with views down to the port and inlet. We appeared to be the only guests at the hotel until we met Mary, a fifty eight year old lady from Athens. She came into the lounge area and started chatting in broken English. She told me her husband George was in their room watching the football on television and she wanted to socialise. I asked her if she would like to sit with us for dinner and she readily accepted but she explained that she had had dinner earlier.

"我们的第一个晚上在酒店度过了一个意见菲洛米纳俯瞰到港口和扫进山谷在卡瓦拉。在我们看来是唯一的客人在酒店,直到我们遇到玛莉,一58年从雅典老太太。她走进休息区,并开始在蹩脚的英语聊天。她告诉我,她的丈夫乔治在自己的房间看着电视上的足球和她想交往。我问她是否愿意坐下来和我们吃晚饭,她欣然接受,但她解释说,她吃过晚饭早。"

Elias, Max, Thomas with the ladies from the Aussie Team   "埃利亚斯,MAX,与来自澳大利亚队的托马斯女士

   Mary loved to talk, in that Greek way, lots of gestures, eye rolls and facial movements especially when she was expressing her apparent frustration with George.  She engaged Ken, Peter, Dave and I in conversation or should I say a lot of listening. For someone with broken English she was very competent at expressing herself. By the end of the evening she was telling me how much she loved me and the group. “I love you, I love you, my little one, my little one” as she blew air kisses around and tears welled up in her eyes. She was enthused that we were driving as a group and that we would go home “full up with things we had seen” furthermore in her view it was important to travel as “soon you are no more” She loved “Australies” because George  had six cousins living in Sydney.   

"玛丽喜欢交谈,希腊的方式,大量的手势,眼睛和面部动作,特别是辊时,她表示她与乔治明显的挫折。她从事肯,彼得,戴维和我交谈,还是应该听我说了很多。对于蹩脚的英语,她非常能干的人在表达自己。到了晚上最后她告诉我她是多么爱我和组。 “我爱你,我爱你,我的小家伙,我的小家伙“ ,因为她的空气吹过来吻她的泪水涌出眼眶。她兴奋地说,我们开车作为一个群体,我们回家去“充分与我们已经看到“在她看来事情还重要的是旅游的“很快你没有更多的“她爱“ Australies “,因为乔治6表兄弟住在悉尼。"

 She insisted that in the morning we should visit a nearby archaeological site, Fillippos which was constructed in the third century BC and was also linked to Saint Paul’s ministry.

"她坚持认为,我们应该在上午参观附近的一个考古遗址,建于公元前三世纪,也是与圣保罗部Fillippos 。"

Next morning at seven o’clock breakfast there was Mary all dressed and ready to go. George was in tow. We explained that we would be making a brief visit there as we had a long drive ahead. When we arrived at the site and Mary and George were in the car park. Again we explained we would be doing a quick walk through. Mary was an ambler. She said “don’t worry George don’t want to come here but I told him he have to come here because my people are coming”

"第二天早晨7点在那里吃早饭是玛丽所有穿好衣服,准备去。乔治是在拖。我们解释说,我们将作出一个简短的访问,因为我们已经有很长的车道前进。当我们在现场和玛丽和乔治在抵达停车场。我们再一次说明,我们会做一个快速穿行。玛丽是一个安布勒。她说:“不用担心乔治不想来这里,但我告诉他,他要来这里,因为我的人都来了“"

We did a rapid run through, and we “her people” farewelled Mary and George with kisses and handshakes, leaving them with Aussie flags and koala bear key rings with Mary,  her hand on her hand on her heart, continuing to declare her love for all of us.  Presumably George could now spend the day as he wished.

"我们做了一个快速穿过,而我们“她的人“送行亲吻和握手玛丽和乔治,留下了他们澳元旗帜和考拉熊与玛丽钥匙圈,她的手放在她的手放在她的心,继续宣布她的爱我们大家。大概乔治现在可以花一天他所愿。"

On ward to meet the guys: Elias, Thomas and Max from the MG Car Club of Greece at Edessa north of Thessalonica. They had driven in their MGBs some  500 kms from Athens to meet us. The original plan was to have lunch with them and then drive on to Macedonia  but a fantastic traditional Greek lunch at the beautiful waterfall restaurant turned into a mellow event and everyone agreed we should join Elias, Max and Thomas and spend the night at Edessa. Great to have a flexible itinerary. Elias made some quick phone calls and we were all booked in to traditional hotel in gorgeous old stone buildings overlooking the stunning valley. Sitting on the terraced deck watching the sunset and then the full moon rise we knew we were on holiday and doing the social bit of the journey.

"对病房,以满足来自MG汽车俱乐部的希腊萨洛尼卡在埃德萨的北方球员:埃利亚斯,托马斯和Max 。他们在他们的带动MGBs从雅典约500公里,以满足我们。原计划是在与他们共进午餐,然后开车到马其顿,而是一个梦幻般的希腊传统的午餐在美丽的瀑布成为醇厚事件变成餐厅,每个人都同意我们应该加入埃利亚斯,马克斯和托马斯在埃德萨,花了一夜。大到有一个灵活的行程。埃利亚斯很快取得了一些电话,我们都在向老石俯瞰美丽迷人的山谷建筑传统的酒店预订。坐在露台看日落甲板,然后上升的满月,我们知道我们是在度假,做对社会的征程位。"

The guys were” bon vivants”, proudly Greek and had lots of hearty historical tales and political observations spiced  with much robust laughter; and they didn’t always default back to car talk. They are working to build up their club and have made good international contacts. We are all invited to return to Greece anytime and just contact them. They tell us that roads in Albania and Macedonia are not good and very dangerous……..so we will see.

"这些家伙是“盂兰盆vivants “ ,曾骄傲地对希腊和衷心的历史故事和许多强大的笑声五香政治意见的批次,他们并不总是默认返回到汽车的谈话。他们正在努力建立自己的俱乐部,取得了良好的国际交往。我们都邀请去希腊,只是随时与他们联系。他们告诉我们,在阿尔巴尼亚和马其顿的道路并不好,非常危险... ... ..所以我们会看到。"

Moonshine, Greece  "蒙夏恩,希腊"

    Our stay at Edessa 89 kms west of Thessalonica was delightful and a place we would all love to return to. Situated on a plateau between the Vermio and Vora  Mountains in the province of Pella once the home to the Macedonian kings: Phillip and Alexander with a population of 25,000 people  and the remains of ancient buildings from the fourth century BC  and with a human presence which dates back to the Copper Age. 

"我们在埃德萨逗留89公里以西的萨洛尼卡是愉快的,有地方我们都爱返回。坐落在一间Vermio和埃武拉山脉的高原佩拉省立即向马其顿国王家:菲利普和亚历山大有25000人口,古建筑仍然从公元前四世纪和人类存在的日期回到铜时代。"

Our small boutique hotel was enchanting and our hostess Anastasia made us so welcome with bowls of the biggest and plumpest cherries I have even eaten, the size of plums and a traditional breakfast with Greek pastries filled with cheese and fish spread. The pleasant rooms had brass beds, beautiful antique linen and of course the picture of Our Lord above the bed.

"我们的小型精品酒店是迷人的,我们的女主人阿纳斯塔西使我们如此欢迎碗最大和丰满吃樱桃我什至,在规模和李子与奶酪和鱼蔓延充满希腊糕点传统早餐。宜人的客房已黄铜床,美丽的古董亚麻布,当然我们的主床上的照片。"

The people we talked with   tell us that although the Greek government is bankrupt  some people are still doing OK just like in the state of California, where the state is in trouble but some private citizens have their own ways to manage . People are concerned with high levels of unemployment and the effect this has on their country. Some of the economic issues have been exacerbated by the EU framework whereby countries are virtually told what to produce and this has impacted severely in the agriculture sector.

"人们告诉我们,我们与希腊政府虽然已破产还有一些人这样做,就像在加州,那里的国家陷入困境,但一些私人公民都有自己的方法来管理国家确定了座谈。人们高层次的失业和落实这项对他们的国家十分关注。经济的一些问题已经加剧了欧盟的框架,使国家几乎对生产什么,这还影响到农业部门严重。"

The drive from Edessa  was according to Kerith, Targa standard (for those like me who didn’t know what a Targa is…it is an annual race around Tasmania where cars go at unimaginable speeds). We traversed up to 1500 metres and around sweeping bends, through the what would be the winter  snowfields and down again.

"从埃德萨驱动器根据Kerith ,塔加像我谁也不知道这些标准(什么是微星是...这是一个在车的周围塔斯马尼亚难以想象的速度进入一年一度的赛事)。我们走过了1500米,周围扫弯,通过什么将是冬季滑雪场和下来。"

 The idyllic trance was broken when we pulled up for petrol and Ian M went to the WC behind the petrol station and was viciously bitten on the leg by an Alsatian cross  on a long chain.   He has nasty gashes and is on a course of penicillin but being a real trooper he was soon making jokes about the welfare of the dog. Not good and you don’t expect something like this at a petrol fill.

"田园诗般的恍惚被打破了,当我们拉起汽油和伊恩M去油站后面的厕所,由一对长链阿尔萨斯交叉恶毒的腿咬伤。他讨厌加希斯和在青霉素当然是作为一个真正的骑兵,但他很快作出有关狗的福利笑话。不好,你不要指望在一汽油这样的事情填补。"

PS: Yellow Car yet again another new fan belt…….how many will it take to get to the UK? Peter is still prone to leave the convoy with a CB call “will catch up” We know he is just checking out the auto stores for another, you guessed it………..

"注:黄色汽车又一次新的风扇皮带... ... 。需时多少会去英国?彼得还容易留下的CB致电车队“将赶上“我们知道他只是检查出另一个汽车商店,你猜对了... ... ... .."
