Greetings from Greece! Athens is HOT! I've been sweating like crazy, but I love it. Sorry for the let down folks, but once again I haven't been able to find internet where I can post pics.

I got in on Friday and pretty much just settled in, ate dinner, and went to bed. Yesterday (8/9) Paul and I visited the Parthenon and ancient Agora. That was pretty spectacular, as was the view of the city. We walked all around the city. It's not as dirty as I was expecting and it's really quiet right now because there's a national holiday going on. That's actually been really nice. People have been really helpful and most everyone speaks English.

Sunday (8/10) was a lazy day....reading books and getting rested. We went to a few other landmarks like the Temple of Zeus and an Olympic Stadium built in the 1800s. Then we wandered other areas of the city.

This morning (8/11) we basically made preparations for the next few days. We'll be here until Wednesday, then we take a tour to Meteora and Delphi. We come back to Athens Thursday evening and take a sleeper boat to the island of Santorini.

Hopefully I'll be able to find a place to post pics soon!!
