Andrew and I have not been up to much the last two weeks.
Since returning from our Presidents’ Day Weekend in Washington, I have been studying and Andrew has been working. We heard a concert Thursday night, but otherwise we have attended to business.
This weekend, we got our things together for Greece. Our clothes and personal items were selected and carefully packed. Everything is ready to go. All we need do on the 12th is grab our bags and head for the airport.
There is a seven-hour time difference between Greece and the East Coast of the United States. Our expected total travel time between Boston and Athens is twelve hours and thirty minutes. We are scheduled to depart Boston at 1:45 p.m. local time and arrive in Athens at 9:15 a.m. local time the next day. Andrew’s parents and Alex have an expected total travel time of fourteen hours. They are scheduled to depart Minneapolis at 11:15 a.m. local time and arrive in Athens at 9:15 a.m. local time the next day.
We have been keeping watch over Greece’s current political and economic crisis—and much enjoying the nasty public spats between Germany and Greece.
It is our hope that the trip will not be affected by the situation.
