Sadly, Ms. Whittaker gave a very poor representation of the Varvakeios central market. Her tour started with a walking tour of the Omonia area that was not described in the title of the presentation. It seemed that she was reading off a travel guide and it was clear she was just a tourist of the area, not an expert. Even some of the information she provided eg. the Feta cheese and how most places in Greece can not call their cheese Feta?, eh? was false. The presentation lacked the vitality and authentic narration that a local would have brought in. For an Athenian, it is upsetting to watch such a dull, un rehearsed presentation of the capital's historic market.
The presentation really increased my desire to visit Athens. After all part of the fun of travel is new food, drink, and experiences. Museums and the Acropolis are amazing, but the food and the market add another dimension of fun. Thank you, Katie, for an enjoyable virtual tour of the Varvakios Market and more.
So well prepared and informative. I cannot wait to get to Athens and experience all that we learned about. Katherine was wonderful!
