Today was my first full day in Greece. My journey started Monday evening flying from DC to London, and then London to Athens. Thankfully, though both flights were delayed, everything went very smoothly.
Today we had an orientation session with the school who is hosting us for the first 7 days of the trip, we saw the first stadium of the modern Olympics, climbed Philopappos Hill for a gorgeous view of Athens, learned some basic conversational Greek phrases, and had a family styled meal in a restaurant. I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced a Greek family-styled meal, but there was so much food on the table at any given point in time – it was the best possible type of overwhelming.
Here are some pictures from the day
