DEATH BY MEAT: (nr. Thessaloniki, Greece)

We drove out to Polis' longtime friend Nikos mother Sofia's country house (yeah for Greek hospitality!) about an hour north of Thessaloniki. It was so relaxing...the house came complete with an olive grove, free-range chickens and a very healthy barn cat - who incidentally thinks it's one of the chicks. We had the tastiest meal out in the garden followed by a lazy siesta on the grass under the olive trees before coffee and cake at sunset. Ahhhh, life is good. Not only does Nikos have a classic Greek sense of humour, but it is customary in these parts to consume half your body-weight in meat products. It was great, nearly killed us - a good way to go.
