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.

We sailed to our first island Kythnos- and stopped off at Kolona for a lovely swim. This is a crescent shaped sandbar which spans two beaches. We swam in the clear waters and  did callisthenics on the beach and then crossed into the opposite bay which was full of chunks of marble.

We berthed and headed into the Chora, the capital of the island. A lot of the capitals of the islands are inland and often high on hills to avoid the pirates and other invaders. Our taxi driver told us what the island was famous for- sun, sea, goats and fish.

 Perhaps my favourite door in the whole trip.
The lace curtains, hand made adorning most windows, I chose this one exceptionally as it was mauve and not blue.
 An island quite famous for its pottery. Who would have expected blue and white here !
The perfect courtyard for a good meal - Close to god who can look after our spiritual needs while we fill our bellies. Chora has a population of some 1500 and some 230 churches. I was doubtful about how religious they all were, and a more plausible explanation was that the little churches were given electricity first so it was not a bad deal. Build a small church in someone's memory and be lit up spiritually and literally!

Dinner this evening was at Ostria and the standout dish were small fried prawns. Snacky, crunchy, fishy and delicious and a huge grilled fangri - The evening ended for some on the yacht next to us in the harbour. The Romanians on board were serving shots of the most lethal white stuff.
