Wednesday, May 3rd, Athens


At dinner tonight, we met our guide and the other two couples we'll be traveling with over the next two weeks.  Serra Hughes is our main tour guide, a seasoned member of the Adventures Abroad family.  Bill and Jean currently living in Connecticut, and Bill and Karen currently living in Minnesota, all shared stories of their lives and traveling histories.  It is remarkable how similar we are, and how closely our lives have crossed and mirrored.  Serra explained the itinerary in much greater detail, and answered our questions about daily schedules and routines.  Most of the time, we'll also have local guides, and they will bring a wealth of additional insights.

Not many photos today, as the flight over was pretty uneventful (but too long waiting in lines).  We're right underneath the Parthenon and Acropolis, but can't see it for the high-rise hotels and apartments nearby.  We'll have two days here at the end of the trip, so I'm not worried we won't see plenty of it.
