The view from our hotel.
As soon as we arrived in Greece, I knew it would outshine the rest of the trip. It was sooo beautiful. The people there are so sweet, and speak really good English, which is nice. We got to the hotel around 10 a.m., and had some breakfast... namesly bread, cheese, ham, tomatoes and cereal. It's getting repetative, but it's filling and tastes fine. We are staying at the Hotel Frini in the apartments. To get to the apartments, you have to climb over 160 stairs, but it's such a beautiful view and a huge room. The toilet situation sucks because you can't flush paper down, but you get used to it. We have another shower like in Paris-- you can't help but get the bathroom soaked when you shower. But in general, the room is nice.
Canadian Mike and me at the toga party.
We went into Corfu
town for some shopping and eating. I bought a necklace, ring and henna tatoo on my back. It's pretty, and most definitely a waste of money, but oh well. It was also a bit drizzly and I ended up falling on the cobblestone sidewalk. My flip-flops just don't have any traction. It was embarassing, but at least I didn't get hurt. I had baklavah and a cheese pastry for lunch.... absolutely unhealthy, but also absolutely delicious. We had a traditional greek meal for dinner. It was dolmathes (olive leaves wrapped around a rice and meat mixture), plus roasted chicken, pasta and onions, and green beans. We had a good chocolate cake for dessert too. That night was also a toga party in the bar of Hotel Frini. We had to rent bedsheets for 1 euro each, and we learned how to tie them. I had bought a bottle of wine during the day, and finished it before the party even started... oops. I was feeling pretty good by the time the party started. I danced with all my friends, shouted our day song again, and then went with mike to explore the beach down the road. Good times. Made it back to my room and went to sleep.
