returned to Athens after a a few weeks of being captivated
by the Greek Islands -- Santorini, Mykonos, Naxos and Antiparos.
Soon we'd be on our way to Corfu, but for almost a week this
would be our base.
usual we had no reservations in the city, but for good or ill
we met another couple on the ferry who were very enthusiastic
about a little hotel they had found right in the city center.
In the end, it wasn't what we were hoping for, but it would do
for the short time we'd be in the city. Let it always be said
trust your first instincts when you meet folks.
settled in and soon were out walking the streets where dining
seemed to be the major event of the day. There were dozens of
appealing options just a block away from our hotel. We picked
one almost on the toss of a coin and met the chef below on the
left who gave us his wonderful recipe for tzatziki the wonderful
Greek accompaniment to so many foods.
