Comment:Rita STAMOULIS, are you related to brothers Pantellis and George STAMOULIS of the Kalimasia STAMOULIS’s? I think George went to Sydney many many years ago. He was a real cool dude at school but everyone laughed as he would always just sit there and eat food and not respond when you spoke to him !!! Man he could eat!!! Although it was sad to see him leave the village, the food stocks suddenly rose about 500%. Please get back to me if you are related to George !! Bill.

Comment:Born and raised in Kallimasia. Spend the best early years of my life with much loved relatives and friends. The best village in Chios. Can’t stop talking about "my island" to other Greeks in Toronto. I will see you soon Kallimasia. Kali Antamosi!
