It was another travel day, our second consecutive one, so we were eager to be over with the part of the day that involved carrying our bags. Before we left I went up to the store to buy some grapes, peaches and conditioner, everything was written in Greek but I got the gist of "2 for 1", so it ended up pretty cheap.
