where is my R-2 D-2 bag?

got left behind in milan, but no fear, it came the next day...

while i stayed with my friend's family in athens.  and was spoiled.

my friend's parents were like professional cooks.  her dad in particular, from crete, first introduced me to crete bread, honey, grapes, and its cuisine of rabbit and stews.  drool.  for you teachers - /M/ /M/ /M/.

met up with our friend the missouri kevin and took a day trip to see the temple of poseidon.  it overlooked the sea and when evening came, the lights made the temple glow.  it was spectacular.

we met up the next day to tour the archeological museum.  i think we read everything in the museum and crawled out 5 hours later, famished and tired.  we sure enjoyed EVEREST and those donuts on the street corners!

HUGE thanks to my friend effie and her greek-japanese family!  loving, caring, and so family-oriented...i felt like i was adopted into it for 8/9 days!  boy was it hard to leave.

delphi, olympia, next time...

let the island hopping begin!
