Crying about the Rain

vrehee

Hope you had the chance to fly your kite on Clean Monday yesterday, because with the rain today in Paphos, you might not be able

to. But hey, the farmers really need the rain this year; so it’s all good.

To say it’s raining in Greek, you only need one word. VRE-hee.

Βρέχει

Βρέχει

 

You would think you say Bre-hee,

but that letter that looks like a B has a V sound: VRE-hee.

Βρέχει

And the letter that looks like a P has the R sound.

Βρέχει

And the letter that looks like an X has a hard H sound.

Βρέχει

And don’t forget that the first syllable is accented.

Βρέχει

I know–it’s just one of those vre-hee days.

Βρέχει

And these two letters make the “ee” sound, so smile.

I know–it’s just one of those VRE-hee days.
