Putting the finishing touches on Greece





Many things have transpired in Santorini...went to the city of Firo today, and experienced some additional sites and sounds in Greece; the shops were more reasonable, and the bakery was superb. Of course, the diet is just what I need for preparation for the South Carolina 50K on June 8!

Yesterday was a full day at sea, with stops at a dormant volcano that some would portend is the site of the lost city of Atlantis. We also jumped off the boat into very cold water, and swam to a hot springs to relax.

Now, another major move to the airport at 4:30 tomorrow morning. Getting 90 students on a bus at that hour is a big undertaking. We have a long layover in the Athens airport, then on to Barcelona.

Christie has been a good traveling partner. She now returns home before heading out to Brazil for several weeks.

This is a life I would not have dreamed of several years ago. What an adventure.
