Arrival in Athens

I left South Bend yesterday at 6:30 am to catch a flight to Philadelphia and onto Athens. After hours in the air, my friends Steve Mech, Rachel Warner, among other new CYA friends and I finally arrived to Greece at 9:00 am today. The apartments are great. Our apartment has a kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms. I have four randomly assigned room mates but they are all very sweet. And, what a coincidence, two of them are ADPis from Michigan! The picture on the right is the view from our apartment.

My roommates and I settled into our apartment and then explored the neighborhood. First, we stopped into a local grocery to pick up some food as well as some great wine from Samos. It was a very sweet white wine. On the way back, we visited a bakery to have some bread and olive oil appetizers. The guy at the bakery was very nice and recommended places to try our first ouzo drink. He also told us to check out the parthenon at night. Orientation is at 6:00 pm tonight, but I plan
to take up these suggestions!


  1. Love the apartment. Sounds like a beautiful summer aheads of you. Miss you darling.

  2. Sounds like fun. The apartment looks cool! :)
