Giro di Gyros!

After 2+ weeks in Greece, we've become culinary connoisseurs when it comes to pita gyros shops and quality. We're tried burger pitas, chicken gyros, pork gyros, with yogurt (Cretan) or tzatziki (mainland style), chicken and pork souvlaki pitas, from small villages (where the pitas are small!) and from Iraklios (massive pitas). We'll need to come back around Easter for the kalimari pitas though! At only 3EUR maximum for one, it's an easy and good all-in-one meal!

More Pictures from Crete!

Four days from flying to Norway and the unspeakable tragedy of Oslo happens. I don't think anybody can make sense of such madness. While I'm incredibly looking forward to seeing my great pal Olaf again, our mood is definitely more sombre at seeing such a beautiful city and country in mourning.

Yesterday, Andreas took us back to the beach where you had to swim to get to, with the promise that he'd spearfish us our supper. You can see how well that turned out! Fortunately, his favourite childhood pita stand was on our way home. The best pita gyros features big fat fries rather than the thin McDonalds type fries. I'm partial to either yogurt or tzatziki. Once upon a time in his youth, Andreas got into a bet with his friend and ate FIVE of these pita gyros from the shop!
We might as well get our fill of pita gyros, nutrition and health be darned, because the ones in Trikala won't be as good according to Andreas.
