Today is independence day in Greece and every town and city has a parade, which I missed (again) as I overslept. However, I woke up in time to go to an ouzeri to eat the traditional μπακαλιαρος με πατατες τηγανιτιες ( fish n chips to you and me). Unlike the english version this is served with a garlic dip, various salads and retsina. You can't mess with tradition.
For the more historically minded, here is a link to Wiki's take on the war of independence.
