In order to avoid archeological indigestion we like to switch our days up a bit. Today we took the ferry over to the island of Aegina to enjoy the Pistachio Festival. Absolutely the best pistachio ice cream I have ever tasted! Of course the endless free samples of pistachio nuts and pistachio products were pretty awesome too. We did manage to take the local bus out to the beautiful little temple of Aphaia. It sits on the hillside overlooking the Mediterranean. While on the bus I eyed a wonderful place to swim just down from an archeological site--definitely a favourite with locals. The water was soooo warm.
Back to more of Athens tomorrow. You are always in my prayers. Love Mom.
Nexus Note: We taste tested a pistachio pesto at the festival. Delicious. Of course it had to come back to our apartment for dinner.
