You're talking octopus, calamari, Greek salad, sayanaki, tsatziki, feta and freshly baked bread as starters. Then you move on to lamb roast, moussaka and pasticho as main courses. And finally, some yalaktobouriko, baklava, kataifi and yogurt with honey as dessert, along with some Turkish coffee and tsipouro (not ouzo - it's too sweet) to wash it all down. Just don't call it Turkish coffee in Greece, unless you're looking for problems.
If a Greek sees you eating strictly vegetarian food, he would think you are some poor starving sole. Only problem is that the water is still a bit cold in mid May, but those with a thick skin can still go for an invigorating dip. The weather should be fine, however, Greece is extremely earthquake prone and this is a concern with this morning's earthquake nearby in Italy.
Finally, try and spend as little time in Athens as possible. Compared to the rest of the country, it's the pits.
