Talking

Oh,and something funny:the Greek journalist yesterday said "here they are,the ex-king Konstantinos and Sofia(!!!)" when they were saluting the Greek Olympic team.
It seems that some Neoellines still confuse their names.We might need another 100 years to learn our history right...Too bad!

Well......I did not even see them. I am so mad......I have to wait to get to Athens and see the tape.
BTW those two at NBC who were talking during the ceremony yesterday were going back and forth and when the Malawi delegation was coming in, one sad to the other.........Perhaps Americans know Malawi, because Madonna adopted a little boy from that country.........
Wonder how long it will take forTV reporters to learn geography.......



Good girl, Iakynthi. You listen to Aunt Odette..........and be a good girl like Theodora......(When is Nikolaos visiting your neck of the woods??)

It means "in your locale".
Any answer to Odette should be done by PM rather than in this thread.

Have any of the other Greek Royals arrived? I ask because our local paper actually printed two pictures -- one was Princess Haya (who they said was Queen Sofia and mentioned she was rooting for Greece and Spain), lol. Then they pictured Theodora and called her Alexia?! They have since taken it down (after I wrote and complained) but I was wondering if the others WERE there and that's why they mixed it up?

I like all of the five children of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie. I´m old enough to remember the three oldest ones being little babies. Somehow I missed up many things of Theodora and Philippos. But I can see they look both like sensible, lovable youngsters, who still enjoy being with their parents. You are right Odette, Philippos looks like a younger Pavlos.

Oh I remember when Theodora was born after Nikolaos.
She was an adorable baby and then Philipos came in a year or so later.
I am very happy to see them growing up into lovely adults. K C & Q AM are very lucky to have such good children.

My son is Theodora's age - he lives far from me and, occasionally, we will travel together or meet somewhere for vacation. He is not married and does not have a serious girlfriend. We have a great time together - maybe because I am paying the bill! I bet that Theodora and Philipos sneak away from the parents and hit some fun bars and discos in China.
I bet that Constantine and Anne Marie love being around their younger kids. Some day they will all be married with their own families and it won't be as easy to get together.

I don't think they are in Beijing because their parents forced them to go. They seem to enjoy spending time together. When I was in my early 20s, I travelled occasionally with my parents. It is easier to do when you are young and don't have your own children to look after. They all look like they are having a good time, and I'm sure that Theodora and Philippos are doing things on their own without their parents.

My thoughts exactly,ladies!I still love spending time with my parents sometimes(not very often,I admit).
Odette,wait for Fani Halkia and Pigi Devetzi.Only these women can make us happy this time!!
And last,Philippos looks like Pavlos in the 1st picture...indeed!
