Gyros Count: 5
I met a legend in the gyros world yesterday. His name is Jimmy. He's Greek, but he lived in Canada for a while, them moved back to Greece, opening what is now the most popular Gyros stand on the island. He's been there 32 years. Gyros are his life.
I met Jimmy on my second swing past his restaurant. I bought a gyros on my way back to my hotel but again found myself miserably lost, looping back past Jimmy's 30 minutes later. There was nothing I could do but order another gyros.
I told Jimmy about my quest. He was sufficiently impressed that he gave me a free plastic cup full of wine to liquify me for the rest of my quest to find my hotel.
I have since had to face the reality that my 32 gyros in 32 days goal is... well... doable but not really practical. Once my tour begins, I won't be able to keep up my current pace, and there are too many other yummy things to gorge myself on in this country. But I am not conceding defeat, just lowering my expectations, still planning to beat last year's official count of 17.
