As promised, here are some pictures from the Greco/Roman Week in April. As usual, the week began with amphi stormings during class, where the events of the week are announced in a role play. For this week, the Greeks come in dancing to annouce Greek week, then the Romans attack, when finally both Zeus and Jupiter appear and – in their infinite wisdom – declare a combined Greco/Roman Week.

During the week we had movie screenings (including “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”), a “slave auction” to collect money for charity and a treasury hunt through Fontainebleau.
Finally, we had Greek dinner and party on Friday night in the Château des Malsherbes. Thanks to Ioannis, who organized the evening, everything went smoothly – the food was excellent and plenty, we had more than enough ouzo and – of course – there was a lot of Greek dancing. The theme was to dress as “your favourite Greek or Italian”, and Richard asked for my Lederhosen to wear for the evening – needless to say I was flattered.
Some Greeks (and a Cypriot ;-): Dimitris, Christos, Maria, Myrto, Bernard, Elli (in front) and Ioannis, Costas (in the back)
