From Strangers to Friends

Everywhere I travel, iLOVE to meet strangers.  Florida has been no exception.

This is Uwe from Germany.  He and his wife work at the Wine at The Docks in Tarpon Springs for the past 3 or so years.  They happen to know the owners, and because of that connection they are happily employed at this quaint venue meeting people like myself and many others.

Next, let’s meet Rita of Rita’s Creations, aka The Cotton Lady. She is from Greece and has been in the United States for 50 years.  She opened and started her business here in 2007, and has persevered daily in building her business. She is passionate about upscaling items by enhancing them with cotton material. She is photographed here with the first item she ever “cottoned”, a little lamp shade.

Finally, below is a wonderful lady in Tarpon Springs, who has a GREAT job in advertising. ; )  She gets to sit in this FABULOUS chair and “shout out” about all the specials that Mama’s Greek Cuisine has.  Her AMAZING hat is what drew me to her.

Thanks for stopping by to meet my new friends.  I highly recommend visiting Tarpon Spring, Florida for an introduction to Greek traditions and cultures.  We LOVED it.
