It's my birthday today, and we moved a few miles out of Athens to the coast. It was an easy journey on the underground and then straight on to a bus, and we were there in less than an hour.
We were a bit early for check in so stopped for a glass of wine that came with free sort of flakey pastry straws. They were lovely and difficult to describe, but the sort of thing that they do for the technical test in Bake Off pastry week.
We did ask for a menu, but the waitress said that it was not very accurate so we just pointed to the table next door and said that we wanted to copy what they were having.
This evening we walked to the highly recommended local Mexican restaurant and had today's special - four tacos each and a wonderful frozen margherita.
