Letters Home

**Here are a compilation (plus a few additional thoughts) of emails that I sent home while I was in Greece. This is my way to journal and keep my memories. ***

Dear Family,
I made it here after 26 hours of flying. We had a long lay over in Munich and so we did what we do best....got on a train. We went into the city center and started our trip.  At the airport in Germany I bought a book for my German speaking friend. It is by an author that I love. I also bought a book in paperback (in english) that is not released in America. I rock. On to Athens.....
We spent the day in Athens. We woke up and had a breakfast at the hotel. Not bad but very European. Then hiked up to the Parthenon. It was very high and so beautiful. There are stray dogs all over the areas. Dad wanted to stop and pet EVERY SINGLE dog. After lunch Natalie and I started counting the strays and we got to 32.

After the hike we spent the day walking around Athens. We saw so many amazing things. We walked and walked and walked and walked and then walked some more. We shopped and sight saw all day. After a gross lunch, Barf, I headed back to a small hole in the wall that I had seen earlier in the day. I ordered the BEST chicken Gryro and a Cola Light for 3 Eruos. It was so good and totally a steal. 

We are having a great time. My feet are super tired. We are leaving early in the AM for Mykonos. It should be a long boat ride so my feet will have a little break. 

Much love,

Ps Aaron, I tried Bakalvi after dinner tonight . So very good.

PPS Ethan is eating Crepes every chance he gets. I think this is a fabulous idea.

We are lovely after our many hours in the plane and crappy sleep. I love your blue door picture. I need that one to add to my collection. Yes, lunch was barf with the chicken parts and I too am glad for the gyros place. "I'll have 4 guyros Please"
