Greece is pretty amazing so far, what with the sun and the food and the sea and all. Today we made our way from Kalamata to Vounaria, which is a lovely little town on the Mediterranean. My great-grandfather came from here to the U.S. in the early 1900s, and as we discovered today thanks to some fantastic small-town hospitality, some relatives of some kind still live here. Which is how we wound up in their house during a name day celebration, being served homemade thiples.
