Stavros Ithaca Greece

Andreas the Breadman

Andreas is a Stavros local and the fresh bread delivery man.  As soon as the loaves come out of the wood oven from the Stavros Bakery, Andreas is in his van and heading off around the northern villages.  Hang a plastic bag on your gate with the right change and when you come out in the morning, a crusty loaf awaits you.  He's met along the road by all and sundry with the occasional Ouzo or Metaxa offered to him/  As Andreas isn't one to turn down a drink, or two or three, he's managed a few bingles on the road to sustenance, but luckily he's still alive and kicking keeping a great tradition going.
