Apparently I left my brain in Kalambaka when I hit my head hard on one of the rocks. We pulled into the small town of Delphi (which is situated on just two streets) and quickly found our hotel. Parallel parking outside (are you impressed?), we went inside and dropped off our things. It was 5PM by this point and so we really didn't have time to see the ancient site today. That was fine with me, since we had a whole day tomorrow with only that to do. My only prayer was no rain! After relaxing a bit, we ventured out into the town to see if we could find a supermarket or even a regular market.
We tried to stretch this out as long as we could, but there just wasn't much to do there. We walked the entire town and found two small markets, but no place to really buy our usual lunch supplies. We did find a restaurant with some nice views of the valley, and when we were hungry enough we ate there. After dinner, we walked down to the site just so we knew where it was, and to walk off some of the food we had eaten. Heading back into the room at our hotel, Cathy asked me to go get her wet shoes out of the car so they could dry overnight. I had only one problem with this - I couldn't find the keys.
I'll admit, I can be a little careless at times, but not usually this bad.
After opening the door, taking out the shoes, closing the door, locking the door, and REMOVING THE KEY, I went back to the hotel, where I felt worthless for the rest of the night before falling asleep.
