Eating in Thessaloniki
Thessaloniki is known for it's food and, in particular, sweets. In the many sweet shops I noticed some items I hadn't seen in Athens: phyllo-dough triangles filled with cream, something that looks like chocolate covered challah called tsoureki, and lots of unusual types of baklava. My hosts in Thessaloniki and Florina took me to some very good tavernas and recommended some good sweet shops. I probably gained a kilo (not sure what that is in pounds).
