Yesterday was some sort of teacher holiday or I don't know what so I didn't have evening Greek class. Instead I went downtown with some Greek friends and deposited myslelf in a very grubby and authentic Asian eatery. It was in the bad part of town, with dirt cheap food that was actually much tastier than Iskandar. I didn't pay attention so I don't know the name but I'll get it, it's well worth a visit, the type of place that has no menu, you just eat whatever they happened to have made.
But better yet, I found fresh coriander. The quest is over! I FOUND IT!!!! I can cook curries to my heart's content. Thank you, God! All I had to do was pay attention downtown in the Asian shops and go at off-peak times to beat the crowds.
The pic is my hand done up by me with some good Yemeni henna. Come summer 2007 I plan on cornering the market in Athens for natural henna tattoos. Black henna is not natural and is dangerous for you.
Good times, good times.
