September in Greece
September brought a bit of a break in the heat, but still plenty of sunshine and chances for exploring ancient sights. Chad and Elissa Fix came to stay with us for two weeks and we had a marvelous time exploring together and enjoying their company. We had so much fun with them, introducing them to souvlaki, Greek yoghurt with honey, tyrokafteri, and Greek salad. We went to Corinth, Nafplio, Epidavro Theatre, and Mycenae in the Peloponese. We climbed around ancient temples at Sounio and Delphi. We sent them on ferries to the islands of Crete, Kefalonia, Ithaca, and Hydra and on the metro to explore the museums and the Acropolis and other famous sights in and around Athens. We shopped in the Plaka, buying jewelry from George and sandals from John Lennon's and Jackie Onassis' personal sandalmaker. We played games and chatted into the evening on our balcony with the beautiful view. It was a great time and we hope they will come again!
