Greek salad is a summer salad in Greek cuisine. It is made with pieces of tomatoes, sliced cucumber, green bell peppers, red onion, sliced or cubed feta cheese, and Kalamata olives, typically seasoned with salt and dried oregano, and dressed with olive oil. Common additions include the pickled leaves, buds or berries of capers (especially in the Dodecanese islands), vinegar, lemon juice, and chopped parsley. Mmmmm, delicious!

Hagia Sophia, Istanbul


Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, originally uploaded by David Spender.

Hagia Sophia ; (Turkish: Ayasofya, from the Greek: Ἁγία Σοφία "Holy Wisdom") is a former patriarchal basilica, later a mosque, now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. Famous in particular for its massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and to have "changed the history of architecture". It was the largest cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years, until the completion of the Seville Cathedral in 1520. The current building was originally constructed as a church between 532 and 537 A.D. on the orders of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian, and was in fact the third Church of the Holy Wisdom to occupy the site (the previous two had both been destroyed by riots).

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks and Sultan Mehmed II ordered the building to be converted into a mosque. The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels were removed, and many of the mosaics were eventually plastered over. The Islamic features — such as the mihrab, the minbar, and the four minarets outside — were added over the course of its history under the Ottomans. It remained as a mosque until 1935, when it was converted into a museum by the Republic of Turkey.

Sunset in Limeni, Mani, Peloponnese Greece


Sunset in Limeni, Mani, originally uploaded by Scott Norsworthy.

This place was certainly a highlight of the 2009 Summer Course in Greece. Halfway through our month-long journey, we paused for three days at the southernmost peninsula of the Peloponnese, a rugged landscape known in Greek mythology as one of the gates to the underworld.

Echoing the vernacular architecture of the Maniot towers that still famously dot the coastal terrain, we stayed at a wonderful hotel where the rooms were actually individual towers that create a sort of village traversed by winding roads and steep stairs.

Puster Valley, South Tyrol, Austria & Italy


Morning Light!, originally uploaded by niklens.

The Puster Valley is located in the western part of the Periadriatic Seam, which separates the Southern Limestone Alps from the Central Alps (and also most of the limestone Alps from the central gneiss and slate peaks of the range's central section). Half of the valley drains to the west (to the Adriatic via the Adige river) and the other half to the east (to the Black Sea via the Danube). The watershed lies in the shallow valley floor (the Toblacher Feld). The Rienz river flows westwards through the Puster Valley and the Drau river flows eastwards into Tyrol. The eastern part of the valley is called the Hochpustertal ("High Puster Valley").
East of Sillian, the Puster Valley leaves the Peradriatic Line (which moves into the Gailtal valley) and turns to the northeast towards Lienz.
The towns of the Puster Valley are located between 750 and 1,180 meters above sea level. The most important of these towns in the western valley are Toblach, Welsberg-Taisten, Olang, and Bruneck; the most important in the eastern valley are Innichen, Sillian, and Mittewald.
The largest tributaries of the Rienz river form the Antholzer Bach, the Ahr, the Pragser Bach, the Gsieser Bach, the Gran Ega, the Pfunderer Bach, and the Lüsenbach. The Pustertal's largest side valley is the Tauferer Ahrntal. The Drau's largest eastern tributaries are the Sextner Bach and the Villgraten-Bach.
