The Aunt of my student was kind enough to give me a tour of her extensive vegetable garden. Here she is showing the fruits of her and her families labours, shining Aubergine ready for the table. We ate very well. The food we ate was mostly grown or raised on the land around the village. Fresh vegetables, legumes, breads, feta cheese with herbs gathered from the surrounding hillside. I was thrilled to be given access to the local knowledge of the vast varieties of herbs for cooking and medical purposes growing wild on the hillsides surrounding the houses. That was very special.
