That marbled confection was halva, I think. From what I know, it’s made of tahini, sugar or honey and other flavorings. I’d never had it before and I figured that a sesame-paste like piece of fudge would be delicious, but this one wasn’t, perhaps I just had a bad version?
Walking around the ruins of the old Olympic training grounds. Our tour guide took us to the actual track where they held the first games and had all the men in the group line up and do a speed-walking race. By the end, half of the men were running and were disqualified, haha! My dad, always one to do the right thing, walked quickly the entire way. If the men were judged by the strictest standards, my dad would have been the winner.
We like to admire from the front.

Lunch: Eaten under the shade of a grape leaf grove.
On the road: the bridge across the Corinth Strait and snacking on pasteli, a Greek chewy candy made of sesame seeds and honey. Delicious.
Dinner: Tried Mythos beer for the first time (one of the three major Greek beers). Not bad. I loved how there were potatoes at almost every single meal (great for this carb-loving girl).
