Back in in the mid-1980s, I met a British guy on the island of Crete in the Mediterranean, both of us doing archaeology.
My life from then on was 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 University town in the north of the country), and now to Athens. Meanwhile, we’ve raised our son, done a fair bit of travelling mainly back to the Mediterranean – much of it exploring interesting landscapes and discovering how humans have changed it over time – and, of course, searching for good local cuisine wherever we are. Now that we are based in Greece – at least for the moment – I finally 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!
