I have been tasked by Jane with writing something on here every week. I'm not sure what exactly we're going to talk about, but I'm looking forward to embarking on this journey with you. Unfortunately, this week I am feeling low on creativity and energy. I chalk it up to the fact that I am currently living with an infant who is up every three hours during the night, but Jane insists that I have bad jet lag (I still deny it, but Jane is convinced that I've got it bad, though she has yet to prove it- my motto is "picture, or it didn't happen," so if Jane can present photographic evidence of my alleged jet lag to the world, I might concede.) Whatever the cause, this post is going to be brief and uninteresting.
All I can say is that, so far, Athens is wonderful! We have been to the beach, walked through the botanical gardens downtown, and witnessed the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The food has been delicious so far! We've also spent a lot of time walking around the neighborhood and hanging around at home with baby. He sure is cute; if you aren't interested in ancient ruins or yummy food, you should still come just to see the baby!
Hopefully next week I will have a lot of exciting things to share; if not, I'll just post a bunch of baby pictures. You can't go wrong with baby pictures.
|Today we were at the The Diomidous Botanical Garden in Athens. It was huge and gorgeous and featured a lot of cool things like this gazebo, and a lot of runners. A lot of runners.|
