- "Imagine. All through the pregnancy my wife hated that child," he said as we were watching beautiful Mobina playing with her 4-month-old daughter. "And do you know she was born three weeks late? Even the doctors were amazed and asked me how it is possible. Why should they ask me that when they are the professionals!"
- "But she waited until the day after we got our red cards! Without the red cards we would have had to pay over a thousand euros. She was born the day after we got our red cards."
I was invited for a traditional meal. Sitting on the floor, eating fruits and later delicious rice with chicken. My host was telling me miracle upon miracle. Friends say they have never seen him worry.
- "Last winter we stayed in Alexandria park, but for the last six months we have had this apartment." I'm looking around the small room where I am obviously sitting on the bed that the whole family share together - the floor. Two boys, seven and four years old, tease each other terribly. There is a tiny kitchen and a pink bathroom. The neighborhood is nice, though.
- "One day I met a Greek lady. She asked me where I was staying. She was shocked to learn that I stayed in the park. She asked me if I was alone and was even more shocked when she heard that I have a family and a pregnant wife. She wanted my contact details and a week later she called me and said she found this apartment for us and she paid for the first four months. She was an angel."
