Amfissa is a small town in central
Greece; we spent an evening and morning there after heading south from
Thessaloniki. We rolled into town after dark, greeted by a city square
lit up by all sorts of Christmas lights. Because Orthodox Christians celebrate
Christmas on January 6th or 7th and New Years on January 14, we had
a vacation peppered with all sorts of holiday symbols.
We spent the next morning hiking around
the remains of an 11th century fortress that overlooked the town. It was
a great chance for the kids to run, climb, play, jump, throw, and hide.
We also stocked up on supplies for the upcoming New Year: Susan found a
grocery store that took Visa!
