Building the tower of Babel

A peculiar set of translations takes place when Wim (our handyman), Giorgios and I discuss the work they are doing in the gardens. Wim and I are both Dutch but my Dutch isn’t so good so we speak English. Giorgios is Greek but his Dutch is a lot better than his English so he talks dutch with Wim. So we have one Dutchman translating another Dutchman’s English into Dutch to a Greek 🙂 Still, things are getting done, as you can see from these pictures. The foundations for the ‘chicken terrace’ and the path down to the new vegetable beds are now laid. We should be all done in 2-3 weeks, ready for our grand opening party on 21st March.
