Sorry I haven’t been able to upload pictures recently. I’ve been really busy and I haven’t had Internet in my room. We spent last week traveling the Peloponnese. We visited sites in Nafplion, the first modern capitol of Greece, Mycenae, a palace of the Mycenaean empire, Sparta, and Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympics. It has been a lot of ruins but really awesome places. For the past two days I’ve been in Corfu which is a beautiful island in the northwest corner of Greece. We’re at Corfu Town which is a really nice city with a lot of Italian influences. We took a tour of the town yesterday and a tour of the Achillean palace today which was actually pretty modern, built around 1890. We’ve had a lot of time to go into the city and enjoy our 5 star hotel with a bowling alley, casino, pool and elevator going down to the beach among other amenities. We’re leaving tomorrow morning for Lias, a small town in the mountains which was the setting of a book we all had to read. We are meeting the author of the book for lunch and apparently there is going to be a camera crew recording our visit there. Then we make a stop at Meteora and Delphi before coming back to Athens to spend a free day and fly home on August 7th. It has been quite an exciting trip and I will try to get more pictures up if I can.
