House on Paidon Street
Greece
Paidon street is located vertically on Kotsou street and not far from the Emir Zade House of Worship and from the Old Chalkida Bridge. It is said according to Pluto 'on Greece' that this was the burial place of children but no such evidence has surfaced to prove it. On this street lies the 'House on Paidon' which was built about 7 generations ago and has served as the base of operations for the local Passa during Turkish oppression in Greece and later as a home, hotel and as an orphanage. The architecture and morphology of the house may infer that some families from western Macedonia who built the houses of Siatistas may have visited Chalkida to give a helping hand to some odd request. It is of interest to visit the neoclassic home which lies at the end of the street, the interior due to its current renovated state should present the best and most accurate picture.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
