Dec 3, 2010 - Busy, cold, and homework

I really thought I would have had time to update my journal more but things have been really busy. I have had a cold since the second day here. I think the weather change really surprised my system. I have only worn a sweater since I have been here. The weather is so nice. It hasn't even rained at all. Last night I went on a walk to the streets to help young girls and it was so sad. We worked from 11pm-3am. It was an experience that I will never forget. Those poor girls are so lost. They know of the Lord but they don't know the Lord. Please...

My trip to Greece

Dec 2, 2010 - Athens

@@@@@@@ Anil was all for leaving Nafplio a day early to ensure that we were in Athens for our evening flight to Santorini, but I wasn’t keen to leave the peace and quiet, not to mention the fresh air of the Peloponnese for the hustle and bustle, not to mention the graffiti and smog of the capital. I was able to convince him to stay in Nafplio and that if we took an early bus, we could travel to the city and take the metro to the airport with plenty of time to spare for our 3:30pm check in. Aegean Airlines had sent us an email enabling us...

Nov 28, 2010 - Yes, I made it

Sorry it has taken me so long to write. As soon as we got in yesterday it was crazy!! We went right to help and had tea time with the refugees! It was wonderful because we had food and clothing to give to all. We all had time to talk to a few people and ask about their faith and love on them. The kids are wonderful. The Greek government doesn't like refugees so they have a really rough time. The Greek people are really different. I have noticed that there are few black women here. I saw two today and I wanted to take pictures but I didn't...

Nov 26, 2010 - Leaving Greece

Today we leave Greece (no photos today - no time to stop). Up early at 6am to head for Athens. We fly out at 11am (with EasyJet, so we are approaching this flight with some trepidation after seeing them featured so much on the British show "Airport" - and not always in a good light!!). But, they are about 1/2 the price of the other airlines. OK, first hiccup of the day - the car is running really rough. Once we get onto the road its running like a chaff cutter (will we make it back to Athens?) Once we hit top speed it runs ok, but when we...

Nov 21, 2010 - Day out in Athens

Today is our first full day in Athens for sightseeing. So after some breakfast in the hotel we set off in search of some decent coffee. It seems like drinking coffee is the national pasttime in Athens - there appears to be coffee shops everywhere you go (NIRVANA!!!!). Next its off to the main attraction of the stay - the Acropolis. Even tho every tourist seems to head there, its still a worthwhile experience. After all its a place where civilisations started and fell. The very stones ooze history. And we are not talking about a couple of...

Nov 20, 2010 - Arrival Athens

Finally arrived in Athens. What a welcome sight. Disembarked from aircraft, collected luggage, negotiated passport control, went thru customs check (non existent) and caught a taxi - all in under 20 minutes, must be a record for an international airport. Finally got to our hotel, The Plaka, only to find our room was unavailable due to damage cased by a school group (schoolies here too???). However, the desk manager had arranged an alternate booking at their sister hotel, The Hermes, including free taxi transfer, so all turned out well in...

Nov 19, 2010 - Eating kebaps in Athens

There is an extra buzz around the breakfast table this morning. Today, we are celebrating Debbie’s birthday and catching a plane to Athens. Maria hugs us good-bye and we swear to return soon. She has been such a bubbly resident waitress who has showered us with great service. Each morning, she greets us with a tray to collect our breakfast items from the buffet. “Good Morning Michelle. How are you today?” she sings. “Just great Maria, I’m just great,” I reply. We hate the trays and try hard to avoid her. But she chases us around the...

Nov 13, 2010 - The Acropolis

@@@@@@@ What can one say about what is probably the most famous, and I’ve read, the most photographed set of buildings on the planet? I know that I am one of those people who have seen countless photographs of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, but to my delight, nothing could take away the impact of seeing this ancient site in person. We had chosen not to visit the Acropolis on our first full day in Athens, despite the fact the weather was warm and sunny because we wanted to do the walking tour outlined in our guidebook to get a sense of the...
