later we all met at Berend and Gina's for wine before walking to the newest eating place in Vamos which features mediteranean food with Turkish and Greek influence and it was really unusual and delicious. my favorite was artichoke bottoms with lamb in a lemony sauce. there was also camel and cheese pie... a thin pastry-filled concoction with dried camel meat and soft cheese... also yummy! a a variety of other foods. we trusted Gina and Elena to order many dishes which we passed around. by the end, our table of 6 (+2 who didn't spend much time at the table) had increased by 5 (+1). finally, the place was so crowded and noisy that we went back to Berend's.
right now we are at Ano Kato celebrating Jim's Greek name day... Dimitri... with ouzo and internet.
