kusa no to mo / sumikawaru yo zo / hina no ie (Even a thatched hut / May change with a new owner / Into a doll’s house)
from a haiku poem in Oku no Hosomichi (奥の細道) by Matsuo Bashō (松尾 芭蕉) (1644 – 1694)
Greek food is yet another kind of food that I sorely miss here in Edwardsville. There isn't a decent Greek restaurant for miles and miles around.In Montreal, though, we have two areas with really good and surprisingly inexpensive Greek restaurants. One of them makes a REAL Greek salad that puts all the other American versions of this dish to shame. They also make meat marinated in wine with mushrooms that is divine.I'll stop now or I will write all day long about the wonders of Greek cuisine.
