Greek Pastries

As we headed toward East on Hwy 12 toward Idaho, we came across a sign that said “Greek Pastries and Monastery”. Sure as heck, here in the middle of nowhere some Greek Orthodox monks had built a monastery that they were helping to fund by running a small bakery, gift shop and deli by the side of the road. I mean, who couldn’t stop. Inside we found a delightful array of pastries and a staff of Greek monks dressed in traditional robes manning the store. As we contemplated our purchase, we were surprised to hear the conversation they were having was about buying real estate. It seemed odd to hear such a banal conversation in this house of God & Goodies! Armed with a small tray of Greek Pastries we headed down the road and bedded down for the night in a park nearby.
