Lunch and at Little Tree

Little Tree is a lovely little bookshop cum coffee shop.

Having been wandering around The Acropolis late morning and early afternoon, I decided I needed something to eat.

Little Tree  is behind Acropolis Museum. As nearby, I thought have something to eat, then a coffee at The Underdog, then visit the Ancient Agora.

Nothing though eve goes to plan. The Acropolis was crowded, a cruise ship or maybe more than one. The streets clogged, named word with tour guides.

I thought a short stay at Little Tree. Rather than a short stop, I was thee until evening.

Service appalling, though not true of food or drink.

Water brought to my table and a simple menu.

A long wait until me order taken. Maybe not table service,, maybe I have to go and order.

Eventually I am asked but does not understanding what I am asking. Anther long wait. An even longer wait before food is served.

It was good, toasted bread used for a sandwich.

By now, my afternoon ruined or at least what I had planned.

Craft beer? I am brought back the menu. But my question not answered. Eventually I learn, microbreweries on the Greek islands.

I order red beer. Red beer. It was not red, and had no added ingredients to make red.

I order another.

Then I decide on yogurt and a cappuccino. I double check, the coffee is Taf.

Yogurt with fruit and nuts excellent, with added Greek honey. In a ceramic pot. Far alrger portion than I except. On leaving, I ask be put in a takeaway cup.

I have yet to see anyone actually buy a book.

little girl say in a  corner reading a book.

Little Tree a coop. Whether an open coop I do not know. I suggest they use faircoin, but maybe start with a few leaflets, host a talk.

Sunday I will visit a market in … where they use faircoin. The information centre I visited will not be open util after Sunday.

In Greece, it is a very Greek thing to sit and chat, and that is what I we were doing all afternoon and evening.

EU destruction of Greece, the damaging impact of AirnBnB on Athens. Dirty money laundered  to buy whole neighborhoods, areas being turned into tourist ghettos, bad tourists.

On leaving, walking along the street below The Acropolis, a  lovely little food shop.

Green olive oil? I am shown , a beautiful green colour, first of the new crop, only just a arrived in store.  I mention faircoin.
