    I was in Greece for 5 days and returned home yesterday. On this trip, I spent all my time in the northern and central regions of the country — definitely not the typical tourist route of a quick stop at the Parthenon and then party-hopping Mykonos/Ios/Santorini. Quite the contrary. We had a relaxing stay in Thessaloniki, then headed to the small village of Kastraki to visit the gorgeous mountaintop monasteries of Meteora. In the process, we drove through the city of Larissa, too.  In the next few days, I’ll provide photos & observations from my travels — including, perhaps, some comparisons with my last  time in Greece (I visited Athens, Corinth, Delphi and Sounion in 2009). Anyway, I already miss the Greek food and the adorable old men, curious and good-humored, wearing jackets much too big for their slight frames.
