Last Night’s Greek Event

View from a Greek RoadI went to a Greek social evening in Cirencester yesterday, the theme of which was “My Favourite Greek Holiday Destination“.

Members of the ‘Greek Group’ brought and shared their own food, including a chicken pie, tzatziki, hummus and many other types of Greek food. Afterwards, there were presentations made by members of the group about their favourite destinations in Greece.

There was a presentation about the Pelion (Πήλιο) Peninsular, which is opposite the Northern Sporades islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos. Mike talked a little bit about the history of the area and showed some photos of the towns and villages in the area.

There were also two presentations about the Mani (Μάνη) Peninsular in the Peleponnese; in one, Margaret explained about the difference between the Έξω Μάνη (Outer Mani) and the Μέσα Μάνη (Inner Mani).

Finally, David rounded off a highly enjoyable evening by giving a presentation about how he produces his own olive oil from his own trees at his house on the peninsular.

There are many more members of the group, so hopefully sometime in the future there’ll be the opportunity for more presentations about the different regions of Greece people have found enjoyable and interesting.

Mum and I are thinking of putting together a PowerPoint presentation about Sivota (Σύβοτα), a village on the Mainland, South of Igoumenitsa (Ηγουμενίτσα). While you’re waiting, why not read about last year’s holiday to Kalymnos?

News on future Greek events will be posted to Linda’s Greek Connexion website.

  1. Greek foods are like Asian foods, they are both tangy and very spicy.

  2. Greek Foods are tasty and delicious maybe because of the spices they put in it.`’
