If you aren't used to retsina, (resinated wine) try a small glass before buying a bottle. It's something you either love or hate. Similarly with ouzo.
"Resinated"? Meaning "no reactance"? I reacted quite severely when I first tried retsina.
Hmmm--then regular wine is non-resinant? (sorry
One of my best memories of ham radio is from 1993, operating in Singapore. My host was "Mr. Nokia" for Singapore/SE Asia at that time, Simo Hoikka. I had to use his call, of course, and whenever a station from Finland broke through the pileup, we switched places. Finnish has its own language, and a LOT of letters with slashes, tildes, acute accents, circumfleces and such. Simo and I ran a pretty good pileup on 15CW from about 1700-2000 local time, when the housekeeper announced that dinner was ready.
So there I was, an American, in Singapore, sitting down to dinner with a Finnish family (Simo, his wife and their two sons). The dinner had been prepared by a Chinese-Malay cook, and it came to the table in a big silver dish.....some great made-from-scratch lasagna!
