Greeting Graceful Greece

Greece was full of lovely locals, great coffee and very diverse weather! We enjoyed glorious sunshine over Christmas and New Year, and then snowy cold during February. We didn’t expect it to get so cold in Greece, but it did make for some great pics! We got to spend our Christmas and New Year pet sitting 3 lovely cats in Palairos on the Western coast. We stayed for 3 weeks, and really felt like we became one of the ‘locals’, enjoying wine on the square in the afternoon sun. Especially as during this time of the year most of the town is shut apart from a few bars, and of course the Gyros place. For those of you who don’t know what Gyros is, it is Greece’s ‘kebab’, with either chicken or pork, Tzatziki sauce, chips and salad. It is delicious, and very cheap!  The cute cats we got to pet sit over Xmas Traditional Gyros The town of Palairos Palairos square Boxing Day swim, it was still about 20C   Getting friendly with the locals!
