|A Greek lady from Constantinople from a late 19th century postcard.||In the mid-1980s I met a British guy on the island of Crete where we were both working on archaeological projects.
Since then, my life has been a series of moves – from my home on the East Coast of the US to the American Midwest where that British guy became a University Professor, then to Britain (first to the dreaming spires of Oxford, later to a red brick University in the north of the country), and now to Athens. Meanwhile, we’ve raised our son, done a fair bit of travelling mainly to the Mediterranean – much of it exploring interesting history, landscapes and, of course, good local cuisine wherever we found ourselves. Now that we are based in Greece – at least for the moment – I have time to explore the country’s diverse regions (and its food) in all the seasons.
This blog chronicles bits of my evolving life. Enjoy!
