Please come fly with me again...this time to Athens, Greece.
The Acropolis of Athens, with the Parthenon
Once we flew out of Karachi, Pakistan...after 4 days off. We all were so fresh on board, Thor, the super handsome steward who looked/built so much like Rock Hudson(Hollywood actor)
was in such a good mood he decorated the food trolley for the first class so beautifully with 2 small Viking ships made from bananas/toothpicks/red cherries.To see him is to love him..his blue-eyes so blue..his golden blond hair reminded me of the song "Close To You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp6iz--LitA
He told me his name 'Thor' means 'God of thunder', we worked together in the first class. 2 fc.passengers took pictures of us..my head was only level to his shoulder, he was tall/looked like a Greek god. And he was very nice, when we stopped in Athens for 40 mins at the airport, a local woman came up to clean the cabin, when she finished and about to leave..Thor put fruits/beautiful decorated chocolate desserts(left over from serving) in 2 bags and gave to the cleaner..she was so happy!!!.
Then the pilot in command told us about the engine trouble, we had to announce indefinite delay, passengers were transported to a hotel. And all crews were so happy to tour Athens during delay 1 day( until we got the spare part for the engine).During the tour, I was sitting by the 2nd pilot and he told me that Thor lived in with his Swedish pilot-friend, Thor is a gayman!!!
Coincidently...Rock Hudson was a gayman too, he died of HIV years ago. Many SAS stewards I worked with were gay-men and a few of them graduated from Chef-school.Yes yes...Athens is so beautiful..Acropolis/Athens Harbor/Athens Marina!!!
