To be honest I think the food in Greece tasted so good because I was both coming to it from a poor student’s perspective, and an I’ve-been-eating-only-UK-food-for-a-year perspective. Not that I don’t like UK food or anything, it’s just that if I had to choose one ethnic food out of every ethnic food in the entire world to give up, I’d choose UK. Even the two times I’ve ever tasted random African dishes is more memorable than a year of British eating. Though I guess I would miss Ploughman’s sandwiches, those are pretty yum.
Greg’s aunt, who we stayed with in Athens for a couple of days, was a true Mediterranean relative and stuffed us with all that we could eat and more. So delish!
