Our trip is coming to an end:(

Sorry...I don't have much time to write... We arrived back in Athens safely today. It all went surprisingly smooth for being such a tiny airport. They didn't even have electricity at the time (who knows why) but we made it safely. We then checked into our hotel and rushed downtown to the Acropolis. So...yes...we finally got to see it. It's amazing to be able to see a building that was originally built in 6800 BC. Crazy! It is also the highest point in Athens so the view is amazing. We then wandered around the streets, had some lunch, and are now back at the hotel. We can't wait to get cleaned up and have a nice dinner tonight. Last night here! I can't believe it.

Well, all say a prayer that the workers don't strike tomorrow (we were told it was only the trains and taxi drivers...but who knows)and we can get on our flight and head home. It's been a great trip...tiring:)...but great. I think we had the right mix of learning about all of the places (sightseeing, etc.), experiencing the culture, meeting people, relaxing and even going out for a night on the town. It was fabulous. I would do it all over again soon if I could:)

We are excited to head home though...we will see you all soon! Love you! Kali nikta...
