Our relatively late dinners (8 pm, v early by Greek standards) and early start time (in cars by 6 am) don’t allow for extensive breakfasts before work for most of us. So, by 9 am, we are happy to see our Arma partners bring us our daily bread (and cheese, lunch meat, fruit and nuts).
We have mayonnaise and mustard on hand too. We break around 9:15, sitting on a dirty tarp on the ground. Everyone is hot, tired, and dirty and no one cares. The food tastes great.
Sometimes announcements are made, sometimes just dumb life stories are shared. On some days, we are all so hot, so tired, that no one speaks, and that’s okay too.
After about 25 minutes, its back to work! We take a second shorter but similar break around 11 too.
