Pictures from Greece

Hello loyal readers! Did you miss me? I got back from Greece on Tuesday evening, but this is the first chance I've had to write a blog. I've got a student now, and so I've got to spend all day working. It's tricky. You can't be like "you go down the the microscope, I've got to post a blog now." Fortunately, I have internet at home now.

Anyway, Greece is a lovely country. Lots of old stuff. Really old, in fact. Apparently, people have be living in Athens for 5000 years. Also, the Mediterranean is very blue. We've all heard this before, but I'm always amazed. Overall, I had a very nice time and I still like Ko, so that's good. Here are some of my pictures (click on it to get to the others). No particular order. I'll try to add tags later. Anyway, this particular picture is of a street in Napflio.

Also, Flickr didn't give me enough space to include this, so here's a video of a place we ate lunch one day. I forced Ko to sit outside, even though it was very, very windy. He was a reasonably good sport though. We got a little splashed by the waves, but it wasn't so bad.

Okay, that's all for today guys. I've got to find my shoes and brush my teeth before I make it to work. I'll share some more stories later.

Ko and I are walking out the door right now to go to Greece, so I won't be updating the blog for a little while. Don't worry, we'll have pictures when I get back.

No More Soup!

Since Katy would like to look at something other than the poop soup, here's something Sara sent to me the other day. Funnier than the hedgehog, but slightly less cute. Only slightly.

Okay, hopefully that put the "sausage" out of your mind. But, while you're here, I'd like to share this with you. I couldn't embed it in the blog, but if you're interested follow the link. It's an interactive NPR thing showing what the various health insurance proposals could mean for you depending on which group you're in now. I find it helpful, especially if you're like Jenny and have started a facebook war on the subject.

Yesterday's Lunch

Martin asked that I post this picture of this delicious lentil soup served in the student dining hall yesterday and today. It actually wasn't that bad, but look at the sausage. Mmmmm. Remind you of anything?
