Kostas, The grandfather moved to Libya
My grandfather was born in 1952 and his life so far has been full of difficulties.
In 1975, when he was only 23 years old, he travelled to Libya, to work. There he started working with excavators, cranes, trucks, etc., doing many projects. He has valid driver’s licence for many types of vehicles. He has worked at the coast, using huge cranes to build ports. He also travelled to * many deserts, facing unbearable heat.
In 1978, he returned to Greece and had his first child, my father John, married my grandmother Antonia, and then went back to Libya. After a few years, he returned to Greece again and he had three more children: Vassilis, Afrodite and Penny.
Since then, he has been living in Panormo, with his wife, and he has his own business.
