Our daughter has fallen asleep countless times with stories from Greek mythology. One of her favorites is how Athens got its name from the goddess Athena.

I think the best part for the family was getting back to the Greek cuisine after a lot of pasta and pizza in Sicily. And believe me, we love pizza. But Greek food still tops our charts.
