Greece 2010 - July 19th - Creeping Up to Mount Olympus

The 19th was pretty uneventful - we simply travelled from Kalambaka to the town at the base of Mount Olympus, Litohoro.  We had a great, hearty meal at Gastrodromio to prepare for the next day.

In my mind, "Gastrodromio" conjures a picture of the Thunderdome from Mad Max III crossed with some kind of gigantic, disorganized kitchen.  However, the food is exquisite, and I must thus surmise that the first part of the name refers to "gastronomy."  I sure hope it's planned that way, because in Québec, a restaurant whose name begins with "gastro" probably wouldn't fare long.
