the apollonia of my eye...

I was eager to go on the trip to Apollonia and sample all the fresh, authentic produce of the region: apple sauce, apple pie, apple cider...

As it turned out, we didn't find a single apple tree anywhere.

So why do they call it "Apple-onia"?

Anyway, at least we had some great fun with the Ansco Panda! (Photo above by Teshka.)
