So, I am off on another adventure. Actually I’m a little slowing getting this up on the blog as I am really already here in Greece. My idea is to chronicle my adventure. After all it does make a little sense, right, since this is Travels with Jim.
So this video is something I shot when I was still in Maine. The background is Bowdoin College.
After flying from Thursday noon-ish to Â landing in Athens Greece Friday Morning at 10:30 and then essentially jumping in to the Mediterranean for a refreshing swim Â I was so grateful to be able to engage in the European tradition of an afternoon siesta. In fact I was out like a light. And I slept for a solid three hours until a dog across the way woke me with it’s incessant barking.
Yioryis and Agela went to a movie with their British friend George who had told them about a new Woody Allen film that was showing here in Saronida. I thought it was funny that the film is presented in English with Greek Subtitles. Maybe it was my level of exhaustion. I used the time to do some correspondence and get myself more organized for the short time I am here.
After they returned from the Movie we made our way to a nice outdoor restaurant called Psorou which essentially means Fresh Fish. The young waiters were all attentive and pleasant and treated me as if I was a native. Having studded the language tapes I am now able to pick up enough to understand the gist of what is happening but I am not good enough to engage in conversational Greek just yet. I’ll work on it.
And finally here is a photo of the sunset from my first day in Saronida, Greece.
