Live, from Iraklio, capital of Crete!
Greece is magnificently beautiful. On Thursday my mom and I walked through the Samaria Gorge, an 18km hike, which is possibly more than I'd walk in a week at home. We're still very sore, but it was worth it. At the end, I swam naked in the Mediterranean sea. I've been living off tyropita (flaky cheese pies) which are the equivalent of hot dogs - cheap, tasty, and ubiquitous. I've learned a few Greek words, which many people seem quite suprised to hear from me - like a dog is talking, or something. I can read all the names on the statues and streets signs too, but my first-year ancient Greek course isn't getting me too much further.
As yet, I have enountered no nymphs and/or satyrs, but am keeping my eyes peeled. Can't wait to see you all again!
