I am baaaaack!

 

After some tough and lengthy negotiation process I was persuaded to come back to these old stamping grounds. B)

 

Glad to see some old friends as well as some of the recent acquaintances in one place. Let's get this show going.

Are you by chance Traikov from the other site?

 

Trajkov is here under the name Kastorianos, but I doubt he will post as he's just busy on Facebook these days.

Welcome.  Yeah, I had similar issues on the old forum (and this one).  Took a couple of attempts.  Good to have more PAOK posters on here.  :tup:

Have not been there since 2004. It's about time for a visit. Have you made it to the top of Orliakas?

Pentalofos?! haha ive played soccer in your village before! it was awhile go though, like 12- 13 years ago.   kapetan loukas we got a little statue of him in the platea!

 

 

blackhawk: i never made to orliakas.  always wanted to figure out what that single light on it is.  ive stared at it so long, i feel like it calls out to me like something out of Lord of the Rings.  (its probably all that Gordon's Space i drink in the village... that shits awful)

Bajewy, the first time I visited Ziaka in 1984 bunch of us, including my parents made it to the top of Orliakas. We had one of my pappou's brothers to guide us to the top. He knew the mountain and the area like the palm of his hand from his experience fighting the Italians and Germans during WW2 and then again during the civil war. It took us about half a day to reach the top. What a great view of the whole area from the top of the mountain.

Speaking of Orliakas, one of of our xorianos and a family member wanted to build an observatory at the top of the mountain. He is a Senior Scientist at the University of Chicago and was part of many NASA missions since the 1960's. His name is Thanasis Economou. You can read more about him here: http://news.uchicago.edu/profile/thanasis-economou and here: http://www.panhellenicscholarships.org/thanasis-economou.php

 

Eventually with cooperation from Greek authorities he got the go ahead to proceed with the project. He succeeded in securing funding from the European Commission for the project, but once it was evident that money would be coming in, the Greek government wanted to take over the project. Since then the project is on hold, and I doubt it will ever get build.
