Hello to all and Merry Christmas everyone
I thought this would be the perfect day to sit down and write to you why Iv been away all these months.
Most of you probably know, that 8 months ago, me, my brother, sister and some closed family friends have decided to rent a place and make our own business.
In the east side of Thessaloniki, on Vafopoulou street, one of the most charming and interesting little streets of my city full of trees and vintage stores, we finally made it and have built a fresh cooperative cafe named ''The Oraion Ntepot''. The name basically means ‘The beautiful Depot’ and refers to the name of the neighborhood.
To Oraion Ntepot started operating in April 2015 and quickly became known as a very unique place to enjoy a cup of coffee or some tsipouro accompanied with tasty meze dishes at a low price. I think that the highlight of To Oraion Ntepot is to be seated in the garden and relax in a green environment.
Moreover, To Oraion Ntepot is also a grocery store where you can find delicious products from around the country, also at a very low price. Frequently, we organise discussions, events, workshops and exhibitions!

I made the decision to decorate the place, for this Christmas, unfortunately, there were no money left to make a tree, but I did my best with lots of twinkling lights..
This morning, the morning of Christmas, we decided to stay closed, so, whether you believe it or not, Ive finally found some time left to say a few words to all of you and mostly apologise for not having the time (for the first and last time in my life), to send cards.
Ive got all yours ad I wanna thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I have to be honest, I did not feel good getting yours while not having the time to send mine..
Its so funny, when you have your own buisiness, then, everything changes, all my life has changed, all my life has
to do with that place, work for that place from home, do things for that place.. Not free time for me at all..
My dear friends, as you can see, I have attached some photos, mostly Christmas ones. Hope, you will like it.
Finally, I WANNA WISH YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND I JUST WANNA SAY (stolen from the Peanuts)
''Its not what is under the tree that matters, it's who is around the tree''.
