Art speaks louder than words: the Greek/EEU issue painted by street artists.
In this week's Huffington Magazine, we asked our followers on Instagram to weigh in on the pros and cons of Uber; Elizabeth Moss talks about what a 'Mad Men' spinoff should look like; Arianna is introducing the 15th edition in our growing global network: HuffPost Australia; we discuss how Syria's civil war is forcing difficult choices in Lebanon and offer an exclusive look at non-corny engagement photos that will make even the most icy-hearted me...

Back from 42 days in 5 countries, ten mountains on eight mountain ranges, three botanic gardens, six museums, two folk dance concerts, a dozen or more dinners with extended family, swam in five wonderful Mediterranean beaches, took thousands of pictures, got lost in bazaars and took a half dozen ferry rides. That's all.

Story
Tagline
Born in Oak Creek. Reared in Boulder. 32 years a Denverite. In my imagination I wander the sokaks of Constantinople
Introduction
When I was a child I was in love with the Iliad and Odyssey and wanted to grow up to be an ancient Greek. Alas, my wish is coming true. Be careful what you wish for.
Bragging rights
I have trod the steppes and heights of five continents, and redacted them in my garden, so to speak.
Education
  • University of Colorado at Boulder
    1972

My favorite ethnic grocery store. Drop the first adjective: My favorite GROCERY store: great produce, meats, spices and lots more. Friendly staff. And INEXPENSIVE! Why doesn't any other grocery store consistently offer okra and Romano beans like they do? Arash ROCKS!

This unbelievably scenic setting has been lovingly re-built in recent years: most of the Roundavels are quite luxurious and very comfortable. The price is ridiculously reasonable at current exchange rates (for Americans at least). The setting is to die for, and the hosts helpful and friendly. The food is more than acceptable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone! Only caveat: the only road from Witsieshoek to Sentinel parking lot is only for four wheel drive vehicles: the walk is pleasant but a bit long if you want to make it to the chain ladder in a day and back (let alone Mount-aux-Sources. There is a toll for coming to Witsieshoek assessed a few miles away by local "authorities" and they charge you at the parking lot as well (both are not too expensive). It looks as though they are trying to "pave" the road to Sentinel (with bricks--incredible) so this may change in a few years time. This is one of the finest wildflower locations on planet earth.

I wonder what on earth happened to those two other reviewers who inflicted the one star: I (along with 17 others who accompanied me) was utterly charmed by the excellence of the lodgings: they're up to date, impeccably clean and very stylish. The country club like atmosphere of the main buildings (dining rooms, bar, living areas) was airy and very comfortable. The endless expanses of beautifully kept lawns and gardens in full bloom were breathtaking: and the views of the dramatic mountain ridge (you could practically reach out and touch it) were gorgeous. We arrived in pea soup fog, but the next day was crystalline: I wish we could have stayed a week! In fact, I'm planning on going back as soon as I can manage...from the USA, it's not too easy, alas.

Lots of exotic Mediterranean foods (best source for most ingredients for Greek Cooking like REAL Oregano or a wide variety of pasta noodles). The meats in the new deli are good quality, and the prices for veggies and fruit are on the low side. The always warm Ciabatta (how do they do that?) is addictive--don't get hooked. Pete, his sons and his staff are always warm and friendly. I drop by a couple times a week (although I confess it's right on my commute from work to home--very convenient!).
