Lonely Planet - SCARY MERRY ATHENS



Yeah, really shocked to see those skinned-off lambs' heads at the meat section of Athens Wet Market. Must be nice to make lamb head curry...hehehehe...The wet market really interesting in term of 'wet' because you will see that it was really wet especially at the fish section...just like the wet markets in Malaysia!

...helloooooooo, take me home, take me home, please! hehehehe...

...well, not all sections were wet...the dried fruits and nut section...

...sweets and coconuts...

...dried herbs...really cheap...

...hehehehe...you can fiind the scary skinned-off lambs' heads here...

...and this is typical around Athens...popular rounded sesame bread...

...plain but so fresh...aaarrrggghhh, so nice one...i fall in love! ...to the bread not to that auntie...hehehehe...and have eaten a few...

...and also all sorts of nuts...from pistachios to chestnuts...

[will post more pics on Athens soon]
