I was born in a country where I can still see the sacred olive tree of Plato, even if this tree which is thousands years old is now displayed only in the museum. I was born in a country for which the Nobel prize winner the poet Odysseus Elytis wrote: «If you take Greece apart, in the end you will be left with an olive tree, a vineyard and a boat. Which means that with these items you can rebuild Greece».

[…] I was missing the taste of the morning mist of the olive groves on the mountain. The one that goes away with the morning breeze and the first rays of the sun, leaving behind its health benefits which fill the olive with fruitful pleasures.
