Tonight, I attended the Greek festival in my town. I can't believe that I've never gotten around to attending because it was pretty amazing! TONS of authentic Greek food (case in point: the Greek version of doughnuts as pictured above - they deep fried them before my eyes, then dipped them in a steaming bath of cinnamon sugar syrup, drizzled them in honey, and sprinkled a layer of pistachios and walnuts across the top), a live band (playing Greek music, naturally), and people dancing Greek folk dances. It was AWESOME! My only regret was that I had to leave before I got the chance to dance - the dances reminded me a lot of traditional Balkan dance, something that I have done a lot of, and I would have relished the chance to learn a few!
