@  Capn Jack Sp... : (17 May 2016 - 01:06 AM) Τα ριάλια
The money

Αν είσαι κι αν δεν είσαι του δήμαρχου παιδίν
If you are and if you're not mayor's child
του δήμαρχου παιδί, ω, ω
mayor's child, oh, oh
εγιώ να σε φιλήσω κι ας κάμω φυλακήν
i will kiss you even if I go to the jail

Τα ριάλια, ριάλια, ριάλια
The money, the money, the money
τα σελίνια μονά και διπλά
the schillings odd and double
τα μονόλιρα, πεντόλιρα και πού ’ντα
one pounds, five pounds and where they are
ο πεζεβέγγης που τα ’χει στη πούγγα, ω, ω
the pimp that has them in his wallet, oh, oh

Εσύ ’σαι ο καθρέφτης, το καθαρόν γιαλίν
You are the mirror, the clear glass
το καθαρόν γιαλίν, ω, ω
the clear glass, oh, oh
που φέγγει στην Ευρώπην και στην Ανατολήν
that shins in Europe and in Orient

Ίντα τραγού'ιν να σου πω, μάνα μου να σ’ αρέσει
What song to tell you in order you to like it
μάνα μου να σ’ αρέσει, ω, ω
in order you to like it, oh, oh
που έχεις αγγελικόν κορμί και δαχτυλίδιν μέση
that you have angelic body and waist like ring

Στην σκάλα που ξεβαίνεις, να ξέβαινα κι εγιώ
The stair that you go down, I wish I would go it down too
να ξέβαινα κι εγιώ, ω, ω
I wish I would go it down too, oh, oh
και εις κάθε σκαλοπάτιν να σε γλυκοφιλώ
and in every step to kiss you tenderly

Hello Guys and Girls,

I've arrived in Sydney one week ago and I'd like to introduce myself to the Greek Community here. My name is Konstantinos and I came to Australia to save the penguins... :umnik2:
I'm starting a PhD at Macquarie University, Sydney, about the effects of pollution on the ecosystem of Antarctica. I use to be a research fellow at the University in Chania but... we run out of money :pardon: So here I am down under for the next (I don't know how many) years.
My first impressions of Sydney are very positive. I think Sydney is a very beautiful city with friendly people. I had the chance to walk around the centre of the city and go to Manly beach for a quick swim and a game of beach volley and i loved it.

I would love to meet some people from the Greek community and if you also live in Sydney maybe we can meet in person.

Take care
Να είστε καλά
Κωνσταντίνος

Welcome brave man, hitting the beach in May. A bit nippy though the water temp would've been nice?

My hypothesis is pollution has a bad effect on the ecosystem of Antarctica :hysterical:

If you haven't already, try the veggie burger at mac - level 1 of the foodcourt. Yum.

You can catch Domestic flights with

Tiger Airlines (cheapest)
Jetstar
Virgin
Qantas (most expensive)

to almost anywhere in Australia.

Australia has alot to offer......

From the tropical islands of the Whitsundays (Queensland) to the dry and barren Ayers Rock (Northern Territory); from the hidden bars and boutique stores of Melbourne (Victoria) to the crazy nightclubs and theme parks of the Gold Coast (Queensland); from the magical Twelve Apostles (Victoria) to the exotic Kakadu (Northern Territory); from the Big Golden Guitar in Tamorth and the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour (New South Wales) to the spectacular Wave Rock (Western Australia) and Devil's Marbles (Northern Territory)..........

Enjoy your stay!

Guys, thank you all for your replies and your warm welcoming. Special thanks to "Doctor" for the wealth of travel information. "Doctor" are you living in Sydney? Do you know other people from the Greek community who live in Sydney? I did already your first suggestion to go to circular quay and take the ferry to Manly. It was really an enjoyable route.

I live in Sydney, but my heart and soul remains in Greece!

Every single one of my friends is hellenic.....

The only non Greeks I know are my colleagues!!

You should try and make it to the Greek events that happen every so often in Sydney. Get down to the bouzoukia every Saturday at Fix Live in Rockdale. Or maybe you should have a coffee at Giorgios Cafe in Belmore. Or catch the hellenic football team Sydney Olympic FC at one of their matches. These are great places to meet people.

Have you come to Australia with any friends or family??

Kon, you need to get out of Sydney and get a real doctorate at a real university. Come to Melbourne. We have no Lebos or Sydneysiders here.

Saying that you were a Sydneysider because you were born in Sydney, is exactly the same as saying that you were a Nazi because you were born in Germany!
