It finally happened. After decades of wanting to go to Greece, I finally went. I saw the acropolis, the Parthenon, the one remaining pillar of the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus – and so much more in the company of wonderful friends. This trip exceeded my expectations. It was great that I visited London in May to see all the bits of the Parthenon and Acropolis that had been “curated” in England. The islands were so beautiful and at times the water was so intensely blue it seemed fake.
It was even better that our friend P. is a classical scholar who would read the ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions and give us more insights into what we were seeing. This trip could not have taken place at a better time – when else would I have the chance to travel with with friends who loved ancient history and mythology as much as I did, and with our very own scholar in tow?
In other news… We finally did it. We bought our own house. Moving in’s been a slow process, but it’s exciting and sometimes I still can’t believe it’s really mine. Nor can I believe the huge debt. No way that’s a real amount of money.
