(Excerpt from my book,Â The Artist on the Road: Impressions of Greece)
We wake to the sound of rain. Today is our only chance to see the archeological site on the nearby island of Delos, since we will head back to Athens tomorrow. But as I peek outside, sunlight breaks through the clouds. We take our chances and head to the dock. Sure enough, the ferry is running, so we purchase tickets. The ferry departs at 9 am, which gives us about an hour to get breakfast. Surprisingly, itâ€™s hard to find a bakery open at this hour, but eventually we locate one with an available outdoor table. I order the same custard filled pastry Iâ€™ve ordered at other bakeries. I love the outer flakiness dusted in powdered sugar. Topping it off with a Greek coffee makes my morning.
