Gramoste after 223 years

It is hard to get to Gramos – on Greek maps- or Gramoste/Gramostea, the legendary city of the Vlachs from the Pindus Mountains. You have to arrive first to Pefkos village via Kastoria and after that, on a very slippery and difficult road to engage towards Gramos. I have tried from 2008 to get there. This time I was lucky to have my cousin, Stela Aslanidou from Thessaloniki who promised to find the way to Gramos. On her four wheel traction car and a lot of good luck I finally saw my dream come true. My mother was so good in infecting me with her obsessions! In Gramostea I was able to fully breathe for the first time in my life. And it was there that I understood that I am a woman of the highlands.
