Back by popular demand, as I did in years past, I’m taking all of you on a trip to Greece. We’ll visit Vassara (of course!) Mistras, Naufplion, Mavrovouni, Athens and more! Pack lightly, because this is a virtual trip! I’ll show you all of the magic, enchantment, and delicacies that have kept me coming back year after year to the land of the gods!



Vassara Celebrates!

August 21, 2015

This weekend my village of Vassara celebrates its annual Panagiri. With church services held at Panayia sto Vraho – a cave-like church in the nearby mountains, the feast day begins. We celebrate the Virgin Mary and all Her miracles. A giant festival follows, filling the townsquare. Likewise, Chicago’s Greektown holds its own Greekfest – and while my feet dance on Halsted St, my heart keeps the beat in Vassara
