Joumana of  Taste of Beirut gifted me with this award. Thank you Joumana! 🙂

Now, I have to list seven things about me and then pass the award on to seven other bloggers. 

1. I love the sound of silence as much as I love music.

2. When I was child my secret world was hidden in the branches of a lemon tree. Some of them were wide enough that I could sit without having to balance. I spent time in the tree almost every day reading, daydreaming, watching bees, butterflies and ants …

3. At the age of 8 I read the ‘Three Musketeers’, my first ‘real’ book. ‘War and Peace’ was the second one. And it was my father who gave me the deep love for literature.

4. Heathcliff of ‘Wuthering Heights’, my first passionate love! I must had been about 11.

5. A boy from Chile introduced Latin American poetry to me. It became one of my life’s passions…

6. Until the age of 18 I could hardly boil an egg, though my parents were wonderful cooks.

7. I often sing while cooking.

And I would like to give the award to:

Karen  of  Postcards From The Dinner Table , FoodVox and What I Talk About

Sonia of  Saffron Paisley

Diana of Dianabuja’s Blog

Fran of  BetumiBlog

Cynthia of  Gherkins and Tomatoes

Tangled Noodle

Angelis of Angelis and the Istanbul

  1. Wow. Mariana, first I was thrilled for you when I saw it posted and now I am thrilled for myself too! And for all the others. 🙂

    Thank you. And I loved reading your seven things.

  2. I wanna thank my mother, my father, my brother, my grandfather,..,(greek families are huge, you know),.., etc. I dedicate this Oscar, ooops award, to the City of my Life: Istanbul.

    When I’m far from It, I feel dizzy & weak.

    Thank you Marianna, I wish you all the best.
    I feel lucky that I met you in real life, too.

  3. Thank you, Mariana! As I said in my other response to you earlier, I really appreciate this! And, ironically, I worked last night on today’s post on Gherkins & Tomatoes — it’s a list of food blogs that inspire me, teach me, and awe me. Yours is on that list. Such serendipity!


  4. Congratulations on this award, Mariana, and thank you so much for sharing it! I apologize for being absent from your blog; however, today is my last day of classes, which have occupied most of my time. Although I’ll be traveling over the holidays, part of my relaxation will be catching up on all the marvelous posts I’ve missed so far.

    Many thanks for this – I’m not only honored that you chose to share it with me but also extremely flattered to be in such lovely company!


  5. My dear fellow bloggers, you all deserve this award! I learn from you, you give me inspiration and make me smile (or laugh out loud Angeli).
    Thanks from me too for your wonderful blogs!!
