... the plane. Leaving a bit later than planned, but its all good. The flight is so quick it barely feels like we are in the air for anytime at all. We are no sooner up than we start to descend. Its a clear, sunny day in Athens. Louise is helped off the plane by a very nice young man and he takes us to the baggage carousel where we get all 6 of our bags.

All in all I'm feeling rejuvenated. Exploring Athens tomorrow should be fun.

I love oranges and was honestly craving fruit after two days of meat and savory treats. So I asked Eleni (another teacher and guide) if they were harmful to eat. She told us they were safe, just bitter as bitter gets! Mitch and I looked at each other, and jumped up to grab an orange. We had to know. So we quickly peeled ...
