A couple of months since I last wrote… sorry. It has been a really busy period moving back to Spain and keeping up with fieldwork, conferences and so on. Luckily, right now I am on ‘holidays’ for a month and will be able to focus and order things a little bit. Anyway, I wanted to use this post to greet the holidays and wish you all a great coming year.
The year started with a difficult decission, and intense work. I needed to start preparing for good all the fieldwork for the project, as time was passing faster than expected and it was the moment to speed things up. This is why in the last weeks since the last update I have been traveling to seven of the focus sites for the project in Greece and Morocco, among other things.
So, the Greek course is over, now I should continue by myself trying to fix the knowledge I apparently got. But it is also time to start for real with the project. Yesterday I went to Thessaloniki like who goes to the market… Well, for a bit longer, but still maybe too fast. For those of you who do not know it, Thessaloniki is the second city in Greece, within Macedonia in the north of the country, but next to the sea. It has around a million people living in its metropolitan area and I have to admit that I was very possitively suprised about it.
