Wandering around the bustling streets of Athens, I came upon some lovely moments.
And then I treated myself to a mouth-watering gyros— the Greek version of the Turkish döner, or Middle Eastern shawarma. The major difference between gyros and döner, is that in Greece, the pita is dipped in oil and lightly grilled, not the healthiest but definitely the tastiest! The Greeks also drizzle tzatziki in the sandwich, whereas the Turks keep their döner sauceless. I was in love— oh, and by the way, the correct pronunciation is closest to "yee-ros." Expect looks of confusion or disdain when you ask for a "jai-ro."
