So I go to my favourite local butcher, whose nose belies his real true profession!  I order my 1/2 kilo of ground beef and 1/2 kilo of ground pork and am asked if I like “Raki”….As I turn, I see Raki, glasses, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers and I say :Yes but only a small one”. I was given a chair and poured a small Raki and invited to have a snack…the Greeks never drink without a snack.  The Raki was very good.  This really does make shopping a pleasant experience!  A drink, a snack and a bit of a lesson in speaking Greek.  Shopping was never so good!DSCF0798DSCF0799DSCF0800
