inviting lyse douset on facebook and fathers day


   i was stumbling across the endless search box of facebook when l suddenly realised taht l should join lyse dousets fan page. That l did but also in my delight l could also personally add her to my friend list. As my mum is a friend of stephen sackur (hardtalk). With my request l sent her message telling her l was a great fan and how brilliant l think she speaks on television, olso how morally she has benifited me. l will wait anxiously till her answer has arrived.
   Today as many might know is fathers day. We all acted like we had no idea when or what fathers day was and my dad looked a bit disapointed. Before lunch he and my little brother headed to the pool. My older brother headed downstairs to play wii and me and my mum went off to buy a painting from a rather pleasant english lady who had her own art gallery. We returned back to the house and headed of and got some really good asian food and that is really the fathers day we have had

Ethnic fighting in Kyrgystan

   l know its a bit weird for a boy of mere 11 to read the economist, but today l stumbled upon a article about the recent fighting in kyrgyststan, between uzbeks and kyrgyz. l arleady knew that fighting had been happening in the area but not in such detail. About 200 people have been reported dead but hundreds of thousands of uzbeks have fled including women and children. The neighbouring country of uzbekistan have allowed 40,000 certified refugees, but now they have closed there borders and are not allowing. In the article 2 tragic stories (true) came up which l which l will tell you know: On June 12th at the border, Uzbekistani guards hesitaded as a histerical women sobbed and stumbled towards them. They raised there rifles but didn't fire. Then they began to allow them across. After the first stampede the bodies of four children lay, crushed to death, in the dust.
2 story (true): At dawn a young man wakes up wailing . His neighbours at home have been shot dead, his house burned and his wife and children lost.
These 2 stories really gives us an image of how awful and terrible are earth can be.

Cooking my own meal and going to this party

    After my return from the trip l cooked myself and my family a meal for the first time. l got the recipes from 2 cooks Nigel Slater and Rena Salaman. The recipes follow as chicken with lemon and garlic, fried auberjines with tomato topping and union bread. My parents congratulated me and my mum said that shes going to start paying me so l can make her food for dinner partys (serious). Also for a point of information my parents didn't help me at all except for taking them out of the oven. Today we all went to a party staged by one of my brothers friends. The owner of the house was a man known as Leon and he was delightful and was filled with intresting stories about hunting and trips overseas. Sadly a friend of my brothers head split open and was sent to hospital but never mind that. They also had a small farm were they produced crops for themselves and for friends as Mr.Leon is one of Greeces best advertisers. They also had a troop of deers which he rescued from the north of greece from a cruel looking animal dealer. They are breeding rapidly and at the moment he has 3 babies. The pool was brilliant and there really is nothing better than lazing in a pool in the mediteranean summer.

Trip to delphi

   Well the hotel was nice and luxurious, but personally l didn't quite enjoy the trip the fact of cycling up steap slopes for 3 hours in 40 degrees celsius isn't much fun or hiking as a fact. Most people collapsed in heatsroke including me. The guy who organised it was a psycho and he pressured us way to much and if we did anything wrong he would growl at u like some kind of tiger. Talking about the site itself to tell you the truth u cant really enjoy a site if you only have 15 minutes to see it. We basically ran up and ran down, to make matters worse we had no tour guide and we hardly new anything about the site itself. There were positive aspects to the trip like hanging out with friends andeating out in the evening. The hotel food was a nice buffet and l really liked the pool even though overall we had 10 minutes to swim in it. Also answering to my cousin Theos comment on my post about my dream job, yes l do like luxury but it isn't and will never be vital in my life also l hope l do get to see u Theo when l go to america. Alo to spark up all of our moods on the last day while we were eating a forest fire sparked out in the mountain area of parnasos it was about a km long, but by the time we finished it was about 5 km long so it was quite releaving when we got on the bus

Yr 8 debating and going to the Wok shop

   This post is dedicated to the fact of how disapointed l was towards the debating l witnessed today. First thing first on both sides governing and opposition they didn't have a clear, well built case. Most of the point of informations were jibberish and they whispered when they were talking (they can speak fine when they play football). Finally today on the way back from school we stopped by at the Wok shop. Another hobby l have is cooking and l love doing it. Well at the wok shop which sells asian products we bought dumplings, sattae sauce, stickky rice and sushi seaweed. We will hopefully make sushi in the coming week and might try some new recipes with the sauces.

Trip to Delphi and dream job


  l have been meaning to report that on Wednesday l'll be going on a class trip. Though l have been before l am compeled to go again as it is a fascinating place and to note that the hotel were going to is extremely classy and expensive(this has driven me to go again). The trip will take place for 2 nights and will include cycling, swimming, hiking and clambering up the site itself. Now to explain what Delphi is! In ancient greece it was a sanctuary towards the god Apollo it is most comonly known as the place were the greek oracles would answer the questions given by people and answer them in riddles. To cope with the struggle to stay alive through the boredom my mom has kindly donated her i-touch which l will take care of responsibly.
   Now to a completely diffrent subject, l have given it much thought and have come to the conclusion that l want to become a journalist as a corespondent for BBC or CNN. See one of my main motivations in life is to see the world and to lead a intresting and quite dangerous life. That is why l would like to turn to the middle east of africa possibly the carribean alongside mexico. To be truly frank l dont really mind what ever area of the world l do end up in. l would like to change area every 5 years so l can live a spontanious life. Meanwhile when l am somewhere l will travel to diffrent areas of the continent. l have been greatly influenced by Lyse Douset. Zeinab Badawi, Kitsty Lang and Steven Sacker, bbc world news has helped me agree on this decision through manly the show Our World. To make sure that l do get there l have sold myself to the devil.

P.S If any relatives are intrested in where lm staying go to http://www.anemolia.gr/

This week

   I have to say that this week hasnt been the greatest weve ever had l for instance have lost my ipod. My brothers friend flipped out and laid a large punch on my brother. Which left him sprawling in agony and extremely upset. My brothers friend Fred has now been suspended and will not be aloud to take part on the awaiting trip. Lets hope that all are nerves will be cured at Pelion ( boredom sometimes makes my nerves get even worse)

My ipod, 2 ronnies sketch

   My ipod has led a small and unfortunate life. I suppose lvehad it for about 2 weeks. But just yesterday it slipped of my hand and ended up quite unfortunately in my cup of tea. This was extremely displeasing and didstressing to lose my birthday present plus 60 euro of my own money. Luckily though we have a warranty and were sending it back and recieving a new and lets hope an even better one. Yesterday was a event called Literally night at our school me and my friend Jason acted out a samll sketch which came out very well.

ipod touch,cancer vaccination & end of exams

   Yaaay! A few days ago my awaiting ipod touch arrrived. The facilities on it are amazing and l am very impressed. Nowonder Apple has overtacken Micrososft in stocks by 20%. Yes ladies and gentleman apple is know officialy the Number 1 technology selling company in the world. Going onto another more happy news headline. Doctors in America believe that they have at last found a vaccination for breast cancer. Breast Cancer is affecting more and more women every year if they do find a cure it could save hundreds of lives. Now for another thing, after a long struggling week l have at last finished my exams. They were suprisingly easy except the Maths test which l did struggle on but l know as a fact that lm not the only one who found it difficult. Another recent honor was that lve been chosen by my teacher to go introduce the yr 6's to the upper school.

Israel

I was watching the headlines yesterday and was disgusted about the whole episode with Israel storming a boat filled with aid set to go to Gaza to help the Palestinians there. First of all they had no right to storm a ship in international waters. Suspecting that they were carrying weapons drugs etc is insane. Israel always comes up with these pathetic excueses whenever something like this occurs. They completely ignore UN Rures. Over the years again after again they have taken more and more land from the Palestinians. I also couldnt belive how a few years ago they bombed Gaza and put it under siege. This has affected civillians as the missiles were targeted at water tanks and public sectors. They conrol thoroughly what goes in and out of the City and restrict aid from charities and building supplies, this has left Gaza povert stricken. I was quite impressed about how people in Europe reacted and how upset they are about the whole situation. Personally l dont mind going out and burning a whole load of Israeli flags in the centre of Kifissia.
