After Holy Week and Good Friday processions in Athens, Rob and I flew to Corfu on Saturday morning. Aegean Airlines is always so nice about giving you candy, drinks and snacks on their short flights. For this jaunt to Corfu they also gave us clay pots and candles!
Watch a short video of the fireworks on my Instagram feed here.
There's a long church service on Easter morning from 9:00 to 11:00 and more marching bands, but most people seemed pretty worn out by Easter weekend at this point and ready to relax with their families.
Rob and I headed to the village of Kassiopi (more on that adventure in transit shortly), passing all kinds of lamb roasting on spits along the way. We sat down for our Easter supper of lamb by the harbor and drank ouzo from a cafe terrace where locals shouted out "Christos Anesti" to each other while walking by and occasionally shot off incredibly loud guns into the air. Today is Easter Monday and a holiday for the locals to recover and prepare to return to work.
