I like this image because I remember visiting Strofi Taverna in Athens. When you stand on the outside balcony, this is what you see. I was waiting for Dave. We were meeting a bunch of people to Strofi Taverna and Dave was worried they had not found the place.This was at least the third time we had been there in the trip.
Dave was worried he had given them the wrong directions,so off he went looking for them. I was much too lazy to move. Me, I just stood outside and stared at the Acropolis. A young waiter said “Hello madam, would you care for a glass of house wine while you wait?”
Now , that is a question that needs only one answer.
“Oh, yes, I answered breathlessly. Ha ha, well it wasn’t the waiter I was in awe of…it was Athens and the Acropolis. I could not believe I was staring at it in the evening, all lit up, just standing there, defying history. There it was. Oh and the glass of house white?It was an elixir.
