Greek Fest

I remember Maggie Hogan saying once that learning geography is so much more than maps.  You need to learn about a country's culture.  And that is truly learning geography.  Well, we had a chance to learn about Greek Culture this spring when we visited the Greek Fest at a local Greek Orthodox Church.

There was delicious food.  We tried just about everything and brought home some baklava.  There was entertainment.  We watched the children's troop in traditional garb do several dances.

We toured the church and it was really lovely.  There were crafts displays in the rooms downstairs.  But the sanctuary is really lovely.  All in all it was a great way to learn a bit more about Greek culture and religion.  Maggie Hogan was right!
