"Clean Monday"

Yesterday was the traditional "Clean Monday", the end of the carnivalperiod and the beginning of the fasting period before Easter.

Kite flying and special dishes mark this day.

On our festive table were amongst others the following dishes:


Sea urchins

Fouskes (I am not sure of the english name of this seafruit)

Enjoyed with some tsipouro
Unfortunately the weather was not very springlike.
And I am so much looking forward to spring. The best time of the year for me.
