Not Belgrade, but Piraeus

Flew down to Athens last Friday to attend my son's MBA graduation from Athens University of Economics and Business, which is today. We took the train to Piraeus, where we came across this parrot and his owner. The parrot could talk, but it was all Greek to me....really.

That's pretty funny, I wonder how to say "polly wants a cracker" in greek.

Love the photo, Bibi. You must be so proud of your son. The bird was probably saying to your son, "Sinharitiria!" (i.e., Congratulations!).

This is great, Bibi! Congrats for your son's achievement. I'm sure you're very proud.
Have good memories of Piraeus and wonderful seafood. :)

African greys have tremendous vocabularies - hope you taught him some English or Serbian in passing. Congrats to your son on his MBA!

that had to be very interesting listening to a bird speak a language other than your own.

Polly wants some feta and Greek olives to go with that cracker. Eat lots of it more me. I would love to go to Greece. Have fun and congrats to the grad.
