I met Crete in Athens

On Sunday, March 15th I was invited with all  members of Travel Bloggers Greece to the opening of the retrospective exhibition of  the artist Alexandros Androulakis at the Grecotel Pallas Athena hotel.

The amazing work of the artist from Rethymno was a real pleasant surprise for me. His works represent the modern world while having a purely Greek character rests firmly in the tradition of Byzantine iconography and Greece folk painters.

A pleasant surprise was  also the buffet at the lunch that followed the opening of the exhibition which included only outstanding products of  the traditional Cretan dietThe food reminded family gatherings in my childhood holidays in Crete. All dishes were as if they had cooked by my grandmother or my  aunts. I met the tradition of Crete in Athens and was excellent that this happened to one of the most modern Athens hotels.
