Corfu day 1

I was glad when we checked into the Siorra Vittoria Hotel in Corfutown. It is a cute small hotel in the center of town. They upgraded us to superior room, which was small but tastefully decorated in cream tones. We ate Corfiot specialties at a nearby restaurant. I ate Pasticia which is a pasta with veal in a spicy sauce and George ate Sofrito which is beef in a white sauce. Both dishes have the same spices as a base but they couldn’t tell me the name in English.  

It is Easter week in Greece and Corfu is known for its celebrations. We saw a concert at a church featuring some wonderful classical music.  It was broadcast to the nearby square. They also have a day in which they break pots and several processions. But bed was all I was looking for after traveling for so long.
