Welcome to Greek salad, a delightful mishmash from Greece!
Here you'll find a lot of photos and I write about the life here in Athens, Crete, Greek music, art, Greek food with recipes, small everyday-tips, sights and places, and more!
Beloved and a bit crazy Greece in quite general terms!
Holy Saturday and Resurrection at Profiti Ilia, Ilioupolis
Yesterday we went to the little church Profiti Ilia, on mountain Ymittos in Ilioupolis, to celebrate Christ's resurrection.
It's a beautiful place!
Such a view over Athens. I really recommend this place for Megali Savvato, but also for a visit any other day or evening.
People heading home with their holy flames to bless their homes...
...and to eat the Mageritsa soup combined with bread, mizithra/anthótiro, red eggs and more! The hunger is huge after 40 days of fasting...!
Actually many people are still fasting 40 days, but more common is to fast the Easter week and I would guess 95 % on Good Friday.
My small tzoureki breads! Not so beautiful maybe but quite tasty! Tzoureki is a sweet bread eaten all the year around, but especially at Easter.
