Pistachio nuts, anybody?
If you want some pistachio nuts, this is the place to come for. Aegina port is full of these nut shops, selling pistachio nuts in every form. Salted, unsalted, in ice-cream, in honey, in biscuits, small bags, big bags. You just can’t get away from pistachio nuts. Lois and I are certainly not complaining – they are my favorite nuts, and Aegina has thousands of pistachio nut trees. The trees grow on just about every street corner (the other corners have olive trees growing on them), and every shop sells nuts grown “from our family trees on the island”.
