Sometimes she gave silver gifts. This silver object was given with the intention that the child's teeth were beautiful and strong.

I also visited Santorini by a ferry. I was absolutely stricken by the beauty of the Sea and wonderful nature of Santorini. Santorini was the brightest impression I got that time. So this very picture make me calm and happy. I enjoy the peaks of the volcanic mountains which are in the background of the the photo, and I admire the Sun reflecting in the sea slick. I like very much the way in which this photo was taken: sunbeams make the air and the sky still and silver.One can meet the word "silver" in the next proverb: "Cross smbd`s hand with silver", meaning that smbd to get something from an another person should give him/her some money :) Thu 19 Jul 2012 09:21:12 GMT+1 Sean http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/specials/2012/07/120709_calendar_july2012.shtml?page=56#comment9 When I look at the picture, the only thing I felt was loneliness.
