... maneuvering in and out of others with their chunk of communion bread in their hands. We took in the large, overly extravagant décor of this basilica. Magnificent columns line the outside of the church while the iconography was near the apse at the front of the church. This is where the sacrament of communion was taking place when we arrived. Nena pointed out the different aspects of the decoration and took us over to see the relic of St. Demetrius ...

After talking some more, we had to go to dinner but we met up after dinner with other locals and we headed to a local café for a drink which lasted about two hours. We eventually went to a club with the group and had fun with ...
