Oh Patience is a Virtue----I have yet to learn

Don't worry there will be more oh so very much more to's just that now Italian calls. I have a quiz tomorrow so for now enjoy a taste of Athens :D But to stipend the waiting here is a slide show of just a few other pictures (I hope this works).


Well allow me to include a few pictures of my adventures abroad. Just a quick note, my profile picture is actually of me (yeah, I know--so crazy to think about) in Madrid, Spain in the Puerto Del Sol square. It was so fun! I still can't believe that I got to go all over Europe and just soak it all in.

So now for a few photos:
Waiting for the rest of the girls to show up at the airport. And thus begins my sojourn in Europe in Athens, Greece.

The Acropolis----this is the view walking up to it. This is also where Paul taught on Mars Hill. I tried to bring a rock back with me, but I couldn't find a pretty one, so I left them all there.

This is the Acropolis at night. One of the many amazing sites.

There was rubble like this all over the Acropolis, just piled up as if it were normal to see column capitals and marble everywhere.

Amidst all of the rubble were red poppies. I guess poppies are weeds over there because they were everywhere. Something I learned was that dried poppies are purple and not red. Pretty cool though.

Just a few of the breathtaking views from the Acropolis down into the city Athens.

Oh and who could forget the lovely Best Western Hotel that we stayed in. I wish I had a picture of the bathroom---it really gave new meaning to the term "water closet."


So I have finally found a way to go around iPhoto to upload pictures here. I hope you all enjoy. Sorry I haven't been able to post them before now. Just so you know the places I went here's a list (I hope I didn't forget any):

K, so if you are all wondering when I'm finally going to get this whole blog thing updated and so on it's coming! I promise. There's been a slight glitch seeing as how my computer has refused to open my iPhoto--way sad too since I have about 11,000 pictures on it. Yeah I know it's lots! But I would remind you that Dad had this computer before me, so it's not all mine. Anyways-it's coming. Hopefully sooner rather than later!

College III

So I've finally started the blog, but I've also embarked on my third year here at the Y and it's been a lot of fun! Hopefully I'll get the rest of the blog set up shortly. ;)
