Extractions: Before looking any further into the Classics, it is vital to understand at least a little about the part of the world in which the Greeks and Romans lived. It was not Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization (modern Iraq), nor was it the fertile region flooded annually by Egypt's Nile River. It was not even the Yellow River Valley in China, nor the banks of the Sarasvati River in India areas where fertile soil, river-based transportation, and the first writing systems developed. Coming much later than those great, early civilizations, the Greeks and Romans did not live in river valleys, but close to the sea, in generally hilly areas with only pockets of fertility. Their geography was part of what led the Greeks and Romans to colonize and form empires. Ancient Geography

The island is small, intimate and genuinely unspoilt. The entire circumference of the coastline is just sixty-six kilometres, giving one an idea of just how easy it is to explore no matter where one is staying. The local airport is on the island of Skiathos - only an hour or so away on the hydrofoil, but the other side of the world in terms of ambience. Skiathos is lively and bustling, very much a 'mass market' destination. Having said that the old town is attractive and well worth a visit, it's just the beaches that are so busy! After a brief time spent relaxing in or exploring Skiathos Town, the modern hydrofoil whisks one across the sea to the verdant and peaceful island of Skopelos. The entire population of the island is just under six thousand, almost all of whom live in Skopelos Town. This exquisite town is exactly what one would expect of an archetypal Greek island. White buildings rise up the hillside from the beautiful and bustling harbour. Cobbled streets meander through the town from waterside tavernas, past all manner of boutiques, opening into small squares with tavernas and cafés, on up past houses, churches and to the countryside beyond.

The climate in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean climate: mild and rainy winters, relatively warm and dry summers and, generally, extended periods of sunshine throughout most of the year. A great variety of climate subtypes, always within the Mediterranean climate frame, are encountered in several regions of Greece. This is due to the influence of topography (great mountain chains along the central part and other mountainous bodies) on the air masses coming from the moisture sources of the central Mediterranean Sea.
Extractions: Climate Judging by the bronzed islanders, and by the annual sunshine records, a summer of sun and cloudless skies is no exception. April and May are fine, warm months with temperatures ranging from 55-75 degrees Fahrenheit. June, July and August are the warmest with temperatures reaching as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit. September and October are both good months, warm with a clear atmosphere and temperatures up to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. In summer, the northerly wind of the Aegean Sea, the meltemi, gives the islands a briskness and clarity even greater than that of mainland Greece.
Extractions: The fundamental concepts of contemporary Greek folk music are a highly complex synthesis of melody, verse (poetry), and dance. Greek folk songs are not only a reflection of basic philosophies of village life, regional traditions and beliefs, and social complexities, but they also symbolically describe the many beauties of nature, of life, love, happiness, profound sorrow, and even death. Brides and grooms are escorted to church with the sounds of processional music provided by local musicians, and praised with songs of long life and prosperity. Mothers sing lullabies to their newly born; the dead are mourned with laments. Among village people, songs and dances truly serve as a means of self-expression and constitute an indispensable part of daily life. Greek folk music has a long tradition, and is related to both classical Greek music and Byzantine ecclesiastic music. Some folk dances and their musical meters, poetic forms, and modes (scales) undoubtedly stem from ancient ones, while melodic styles are largely derived from the musical traditions inherent in Byzantine chant. Over the centuries, the neighboring cultures of Italy, Albania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey, and other nations bordering the eastern Mediterranean have exerted their musical influences on Greek folk music. In recent years, Western music and musical instruments have managed to penetrate even the most remote villages and islands of Greece.
