jouer le komboloï

Comme je l’avais promis à l’équipe de Pierre Maillard, je vous donne ici les informations nécessaires pour jouer le komboloï correctement.

Placez le komboloï comme sur la photo entre le troisième et le quatrième doigt.

Maintenant, vous devez déplacer votre main pour que le côté du komboloï derrière vos doigts vienne de la paume de votre main, comme sur la photo ci-dessous.

vous voyez qu’entre le troisième et le quatrième doigt, il y a toujours la corde du chapelet

dans le dernier mouvement, nous amenons les trois doigts inférieurs entre les cordes du komboloi, comme sur la photo ci-dessous

Comme vous pouvez le constater, il n’y a pas de corde entre le troisième et quatrième doigt.

le dernier mouvement nous amène à la position de départ où nous rapportons le quatrième doigt sur la corde du bomboloï

voilà, c’est tout 😉

Mais comme je sais que ce n’est pas si simple, j’ai aussi fait une petite vidéo pour vous avec tous les mouvements.

Beaucoup de plaisir a tous!!!

Cretan New Year

2018 is gone and we are the start of 2019. A lot of Cretans have celebrated the change of the year with a game of poker or with playing the dies, for money so that they will have a wealthy start of the New Year! (not for the loosers of course but who knows who is going to lose or win at the beginning of the game…)

Before they start playing the family gathers together around the table for a dinner of greek specialities and of course also the melomakarona and the kourabiedes, these two “cookies” are made especialy for these days and everybody loves them, in nearly every houses these cookies are baked and they give the house that special Christmas and end of the year smell, as all Cretans say, you can’t celebrate the end of the year without this smell.

These kourarbiedes and melomakarona where made by my friend and college Agnes

After dinner Agios Vasilis or Santa Claus comes around with gifts for the children, as the first of the year is the name day of Agios Vasileos the great or Saint Vasilis (Basil)

You see that a lot goes on on New Years eve in Crete, it is a party in which the whole family participates, young and old!

Map Rethimnon city walk

We start the walk at the parking place of the busses behind the old Venetian port, we leave the parking place and go to the left until we reach the old Venetian port. We walk through the port until the path turns to the left, we go to the right and after 10 meter we we reach the loggia.

We cross the street and walk by the loggia from the right hand side until we see the Rimondi fountain at our right

standing in front of the Rimondi fountain we go to the left and after 20 meter you will see on your left hand side a narrow street with at the end of it the highest minaret that was built on the island.

Now you are in the center of the old venetian town.

These beautiful paintings are made by mister Franco, you can see him work at the street that looks over the minaret.

MORFOGONIA

The Genesis of form

The Genesis of faces and their expressions.

The exhibition of MORFOGONIA takes place in the Saint Marc Basilic in Heraklion until 15/9/2018.

 

Masks have always been part of my life and probably of everybody’s life – maybe without noticing – as they can hide and show very well emotions and feelings.
