On Sunday evening, we had our American friends over for dinner and games. Our neighbors, the Lillies, also came over to play (this is our usual Sunday evening activity). Anyway, we had a great time. The top photo did not come out very well, but I wanted you to see our friends.
On the left is John Harper and in the middle is his wife, Marina, with their new baby Amelia. (They are also in the bottom photo.) They've been here for 2 years.
To the right of the baby, and fawning over it, is our neighbor, Ann Lilly. We are SO blessed to have them as our neighbors! I think Greece may have driven us insane already if it weren't for them.
On the right is Brendan Schettig (foreground) and Philip Navarro (back), who have been here for 4 years and have been invaluable in helping us navigate the chaos that is Greek bureaucracy.
It's a nice little group (or parea, as they would say in Greek) of classmates and friends -- we are fortunate to have them.
That's about all that I have to report recently -- otherwise, it's just learning Greek, Greek, Greek -- not very glamorous. The School is trying to organize a day trip to Vergina this Saturday, so I may have some photos and so on from that trip. Vergina is the (disputed) burial place of Alexander the Great's father, Philip II.
For those of you who check in frequently, sorry I haven't been posting much recently. I (really!) hope to have more to report (and time to report it) soon.
