    Hello everyone. My naked kostas- in half Greek

    but sadly my dad passed away before I could learn any Greek. Really regret not know the language if anyone would be willing to teach me Greek in London... That would be much appreciated. P.s I'm gay so not good if your homophobic or feel uncomfortable about that
