Poetry Thursday – It’s BAAAACK!

Ode to Greece
by meWe were hours on a plane
But we didn’t [hardly] complain

All of Nik’s family, I met.
He hasn’t met all of mine, yet!

Clear water, beautiful beaches
Lots of food, juicy peaches

A broken toe didn’t stop me
So ancient ruins we did see

I learned a little Greek
It’s hard to speak

a language you didn’t learn when you were young
Lots of yummy food crossed my tongue.

Pictures are here.
Hopefully, more description to come before next year!

    Wow – wonderful pictures.  What are the white buildings made of?  Is it stucco and then whitewashed?  And the blue roofs – wow.  All that deep turquoise everywhere, including the sea.  Athens is dauntingly huge, but then, I have yet to venture into many of the larger cities in our country.  What a great adventure, with plenty of time to really soak in the ambiance and flavors of the country.  Who took the cat and dog pictures?

    Ok, the snorkeling photo is one of the coolest ones I’ve seen in awhile-I love it!  Your photos make me miss the Aegean Sea…the area in Turkey I stayed for about 5 weeks looks very similar (and we visited a Greek Island for a day too).  I think the Aegean Sea is the most beautiful sea I’ve been to thus far-the colors are amazing and it’s so clear!  Glad you had a good trip-sorry about your toe!  -LJ

    And in regards to putting tp back in the toilet…we know and understand!  It’s amazing how  many places in the world that’s not ok, isn’t it?!

    @Aunt Zona – Zona – Nik took most of the pictures, including most of the dog/cat pics.  But I did take the one of the kitten nursing – it was so sweet, right outside of our back door!  I think the white buildings are basically concrete block, with stucco and then painted white (or whitewashed, I guess).  We saw quite a bit of construction while we were there and it all looked like concrete.  There aren’t any trees on the island!
