Well, it has been forever since I posted, even though I said I would try and post the week after my trip to Nafplio. I think when I have a lot to write, I put it off even more. Because now I have too much to talk about and I can’t possibly write about it all.
So, first my week in Nafplio was great. The house we stayed in was a cute house in the midst of an orange orchard. Perfect, right? So we were able to go to a couple of towns, see some ruins, experience several Easter traditions, and eat absolutely amazing (although some strange) foods. I tried clams and cuttlefish. We also roasted a whole lamb for the Easter. And at midnight before Easter, after coming home from church, we ate soup with liver in it. All incredibly hard to eat, when knowing what they were. But oh, so very good. I don’t want to burden you with all of the details so here are some pictures to explain the beauty of Easter in Nafplio.
Then, only 3 days after our vacation, my friend Chelsea came to visit. After living in Africa, mainly a village, for 1 year it was a fun culture shock for her. We were able to visit a lot of ruins (even the Acropolis!) that I tried to go to, eat lots of amazing food, and shop, shop, shop. It was so nice to have her here. I was finally able to be with someone my age, have someone to vent to (besides my mother over skype), and just relax and catch up with someone who I became really good friends with my senior year in college. So, again too much to say, so here are the pictures.
This pot is dated at 3200-2800 B.C. That’s freaking old. Both Chelsea and I were mesmerized by all of the dates.
I will post more photos of our week, which included Mayday at Lake Vouliagmeni and my day at the National Archaeological Museum (which is massive, by the way.)
Hope everyone has a good week. Peace, Love, and Wanderlust
