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!
