Off to the ship today
Shalom from Athens!
We all arrived safe and sound and tired on Wednesday. We dined like kings at our Athens hotel, the Divani Palace, and then crashed.
The tour of Athens yesterday was breathtaking. The weather was perfect—around 75—and the Acropolis was as magnificent as always. Crowded as always, also. I think the stats are that 3000 people visit the Acropolis every day. I heard lots of different languages, especially Russian. After our morning touring, we all went on a walking tour of the Plaka and had lunch. And yes, there are Americans here. I guess with all the talk of recession, they just want to travel and spend all that money.
The group seems to be getting along and meeting with each other. I love it when I see them praying with and for each other. We are having some really nice fellowship.
Happy birthday to my brother. I won’t say how old he is, but he is my older brother.
