The Art of the Greek Treat!
One local corner in Petra houses one of the best places to sit and watch the world go by ~ so when you have a date to meet friends - you go~ One of the most beautiful things in Greece is the Art of the Greek Treat! I walked to the appointed place and to my surprise some other friends were sitting and having a coffee! I've known these people forever and so when I sat they offered me a coffee! I declined the coffee and went for a more happy hour special - a glass of wine ~ After the usual questions of how are your parents? How is your father? How is your mother? What have you been up to... we were joined by my other friends - who joined in and had a beer ~ Now, the world started walking by as we spoke about politics, the EC, the Greek economy and how we were all doing with the start of the tourism season! The sun got lower, more people joined the table, music got louder and the first friends left and as all Greeks do (especially old school) they treated! It's customary in Greece, when one joins someone's table - you are treated ~
Thank You's by all - the sun started setting, tourists and non tourists ran to take their sunset shots! The new train passed by, new friends joined the table and that was the beginning of a wonderful evening - which ended with a Turneresque Sky in Petra!
