– Did you have the World Cup?

– World Cup? My dear, we had nothing here.  A couple of times they had races, children like you, and they swam across.  We had no World Cup. We had no television, we had no radio, we had no telephone. Where would we know about it? Now, when something happens in the USA, you see it at the same time in Skopelos.  In 1962, one of my sisters got married in Thessaloniki, on St. Riginos day.  And when did I find out? Three months later. A letter came. I was in Japan.
