The new Spring semester is just beginning at The Aegean Center. We have six returning students from last term who have rejoined us. Three of our students are from India and we have an Italian woman who lives in Norway. Other students are from the US and Canada. Some of the local Greeks also participate in classes. Our group is truly international.
We have had some rain this last month and the island is green and lush. We took our first walk into the hills on Friday up to Lefkes followed by a full taverna meal at Flora’s.
As always the nervous first meeting settles us all as we greet each other and begin to have a feeling for the group. Each session has its own personality and rhythm which emerges in the first weeks. We’re all looking forward to seeing the students grow technically and stretch their creative wings.
