I was so cold from the fever, I couldn’t get in the pool even in the solarium (yes, I tried, that’s how dedicated I was). I ended up in the hot tub, which was the first time I felt comfortable all day, but while there managed to make a friend!

We had some fries with salad and a ton of other stuff. After dinner ...
... down and get one. This list can go on and on, simplicity is what I have learnt to appreciate, oh and soap, oh and not to mention clothing. Olympics in the nude is just something that should stay in the past.
Now off on a huge drive to Patras to board a boat to Bari, Italy! The boat = sleep time and therefore Blake = happy. At Patras I enjoyed the last of the Greek coffee I will have before we go on our 18hr adventure at sea to ...
