Where I stayed
Kritona, Angela's cousin, picked us from the airport and took us on an hour long ride to their house. Kritona is in the army, but was able to get off this week. Him and his wife were very hospitable to us. They have a 2 year old that is so cute and smart. We told them that we were going to kidnap him when we left. As a joke I told him I would settle for cutting some hair for DNA so we could clone him.
It took me a long 1 week to catch up on the blog only because we were traveling so much around Thessaloniki
All in all my favorite day of this entire vacation was that day with the waterfalls and thermal springs. It ended with a great dinner at Lithino, a very well decorated restaurant. The food was interesting and amazing. One dish that was pork meat shaped like tennis balls, stuffed with cheese and ham was called "King Kong's Balls". Another dish (I can't remember what it was) was called "The breasts of a butterfly". You have to see the pics of this place. Like something out of a Tuscan town.
All in all a great time in Thessaloniki. The clearest, cleanest water I have ever seen and I have been to the Caribbean.
Back to Athens now for our trip to Ikaria.....
