Parting is such sweet sorrow! Bye Babe! You are an Extraordinary Traveler!

Hello -

I have just a short time before my bus leaves so this has to be short. And, I realize that these messages should have been more interactive. Therefore, all you get will be the nouns of the story. You get to add the verbs, adverbs, adjectives to construct your own version of our odyssey.

Aegean, ferry, Samos, Greek coffee, Pythagaroa, beach, rocks, sea, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives, olive oil, sunset, balcony, ferry, Naxos, ferry, Santorini, villa, caldera, troglodyte, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives, olive oil, bread, Sunset Bar, shops, Naoussa, balcony, taverna, ferry, Mykonos, Greek coffee, St Stephanos, Greek Easter, windmills, passages, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives, olive oil, bread, Delos, gymnasium, stadium, cisterns, temples, stoas, theatre, mosaics, House of Tridents, Mykonos, beach, sun, ferry, Piraeus, metro, Acropolis, Parthenon, National Museum, Poseidon or Zeus, bronze jockey, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives, olive oil, bread, Agora, Socrates, temple of Nike, temple of Zeus, walking, Mohawk, bus, Delphi, Gulf of Corinth, tomatoes, feta, onion, olives, olive oil, bread, Mt Parnassus, Treasury of Athenians, Temple of Apollo, stadium, Nero, Sybil, omens, charioteer, thola of Athena, walking, walking, walking ...

You may also use the words "rosy-fingered dawn", but only if you rise early enough. You may use "wine-dark sea" if you prefer your wine navy blue in color.

You may use the word Margaret. But you must use it with great respect. She is one hell of a traveler. Just don't tell her I'll miss her.

That's it. I'm heading North to see a few odd bits of Europe I've missed on earlier trips. Margaret and her friend Allison leave for Patras->Corfu->Italy and two more months of exploration.

I'll follow up with a closing message once I get back to CA.

Good travels to you all,


—Ray and Margaret
