Bougatsa is a fantastic Greek pastry that is causing me mild distress. I received this food on one of the early days of my stay in Olynthos. Ever since I have been trying to get the sweet, sweet custard treat in my grasp again. I work 06:30 to 15:00 Monday – Saturday. The cafes in town stop making the pastry around 11:00 every morning. I am unable to get them after excavation. The cafe workers are also very sad whenever I come in asking for bougatsa after the hours it is unavailable.
I asked around to discover that the cafes open early enough for me to get one before work. I was finally able to get the coveted pastry a few days ago. The woman who sold it to me covered it in delicious powdered sugar and cinnamon. Yum. It was the perfect start to my morning. I ate the bougatsa with my friend on the fifteen-minute walk to the site. It’s the little things sometimes.
