Clean Monday ...

We should all be down at Koukounaries on the beach flying kites, and having a Barbecue today.
Only its a wash out, strong icy winds, and its been tipping it down all night.

However my visit to the bakers this morning, revealed that Nikos, had baked the traditional levan bread. No other options are available today apart from small raisin breads, which also appear at Lent

Clean Monday is the start of the Lent fasting period, so its forty days until Easter. It is a public holiday here in Greece, usually its quite a party. However the weather has put quite a dampener on events this year.

Even now its raining again and there is a wet persistent percussion on the roof, but its nice and warm here by the mighty woodburner ...
