The hotel in Heraklion offered a huge free breakfast each morning, with scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, five kinds of bread, two kinds of cheese, three kinds of cold cut meats, etc. I was tickled by their offering two different kinds of olives for our breakfasting pleasure. Very Greek. Also there was Greek yogurt and honey. Ok, you need to go out and buy a tub of Greek yogurt right now. It's not the tangy, runny ick of American yogurt. It's strained until it's more a solid than a liquid, it's sweet, and you drown it in honey from the bees of the Greek berry fields. We can get tubs of this kind of yogurt in the specialty section of the grocery store in Oregon, but Bear doesn't know what it tastes like because it's so good I've never been able to spare a spoonful to share.
