As frequenters of Chicago’s Greektown restaurants, we were definitely looking forward to trying out the Greek food in its native environment. Lena was very excited to have fresh, grilled octopus in the Greek islands. There, it’s caught and served on a daily basis.
When first outlining our Itinerary we were planning to be in India in early to mid August. We thought the monsoon would be over with for the most part, especially in the south, where we were hoping to get started. However, while we were in Istanbul we had some time to plan our trip. While looking the weather over, we decided that it’d be wise to delay India by a few weeks. More on India in a future post, but, where would we go?
