Off topic question!

Hey, guys, sorry to bother. But I urgently need to find something out!

Is there any service that you could recommend for sending flowers in Greece? And it's not mainland Greece but Rhodes (Lindos).

Your help is much appreciated. There are some web sites that do international flower delivery but I wasn't sure how reliable they are.

I'm one of the baddest motherfvckers of all time, one of the best singers and one of the best looking motherfvckers you've ever seen. Hold my drink, bitch!

I also have an off-topic question, and hope that Quidam's question also gets answered.

My question is:

is Alexandria a Greek name?

Yes.

ALEX=Protection(Protector), ANDRAS=of men.

Alexander/Alexandra/Alexandria means protector of men AFAIK.

İnstead of sending flowers to some island-how about sending some to me in İstanbul?

when i was in greece over a decade ago, I had this food that consisted of fries and some sort of meat (plus some vegetables and sauces) in a pita/wrap. What was it? It was the kind of dish you buy on thestreet, like a hot dog.

It's called gyros
I thought that was one of the more known stuff from Greece besides kalamata olives, souvlakia, moussaka and tzatziki

Bah, everybody knows that this ain't nothing compared to frappe! :drool:

For the flowers, try something like www.interflora.gr or www.FlowerNet.gr. I think they are in Greek though those sites.

Friki, you forgot feta

Feta could be too controversial with the danes
Bah, we have also forgot horiatiki salata!

So guys, where will you be during the summer?
I'll be off to Halkidiki as usual for 1½ month or so like every damn Greek that lives outsides the country

I know about gyros, but the ones I have tried in Canada do not have fries in them.

I stayed in Kalamata.
