Friday was bittersweet. I had to say goodbye to new friends, but I was excited to start the next part of my journey. The morning began by getting half of my clothes washed at a laudromat (the other half I did later in the hotel bathtub). Then us girls went to Monastiraki to have souvalaki. After parting ways with Shanelle, Fatima and I were off to the Acropolis, which thankfully was open after a 1 day strike. It was a really nice day, so nice I got another small sunburn (I've been carrying sunscreen in my purse since). You could tell I was a foreigner because I was the only one in a tank top while everyone else had coats and scarves on, but common it was 20 out and the sun is hot especially when you're climbing the Acropolis. It's just annoying/pathetic how the men act (but they're like this even when I'm wearing a baseball hat and ugly jacket, there's no winning). I think this is one of the reasons I'm leaving Greece earlier than planned.
