Greece ~ Day 3: food

Focused on the food. All descriptions read left-most picture, from back to front, L to R, then to the next photo.

Not a stellar food day as Todd and I spent most of the day travelling from Naxos to Amorgos.

Lunch: white wine and greasy spanakopita, spinach pie; Todd chowed on grilled Naxos sausage, which were very juicy and fully-flavored, probably made of lamb and perhaps veal; the french fries tasted of old oil. After chowing down, the old lady in charge gave us shots of ouzo.

Dinner: such as it was. Pleasantly mild Naxos "gouda", bread and an apple, a staple meal when Todd and I are on the move; followed by rakomelo, made of a local, strong moonshine equivalent, honey and spices, which we heated on our hotel room's campstove.
