Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Finding Folegandros

An island I had never heard of, yet one of the most beautiful of the Cyclades both for its geographical features as well as the traditional houses and towns you encounter.

The way was dotted with impressive rocks jutting out of the sea and lovely sea scapes.

The waters at Akrotiri Artemidos which were almost ink black. There was a shady beach which had black pebbles on it, a complete contrast to the milky, silky ones we found in Sifnos. An ever changing landscape.

 The water at Akrotiri Artemidos which was dark and yet so clear.
We berthed at the small port of Karavostasi which had an impressive wall of green slate rocks inhabited by island cats who had chosen their home carefully.Oh to be a cat on a fishing island.

The fishing boats provided lots of good fish bits for them. The welcome from the local cafe just meters from the port said it all - its name "Araxe" - which in Greek means to take a pew, rest, relax and enjoy.More on the Chora of Folegandros in my next blog. A place of unparalleled beauty.
