Stereos the shopkeeper

IMG_1097

This is the best shopkeeper in all of Santorini. His name is Stereos, Greek for “solid.”

Stereos heaped extra figs into our day trip provisions, sold big water bottles for half a Euro, and treated us to an impromptu local wine tasting. “You, speak first. Which one do you want?” He said to me. The varietal options were Dry Red or Sweet Red.

Meeting this bedrock mensch was just one of my adventures in Greece and Turkey this August. (Yes, all went well despite some trepidations). I look forward to sharing more soon.
