Kalimera! That’s good morning in Greek.
The transition from Poros to sailboats and vice versa went smoothly last week. Half of the students enjoyed sailing to Epidavros, Korfos and Perdika, with stops for swimming in the sea along the way! The other half relaxed in luxury in Poros, where they studied beside beautiful sea vistas. Record breaking temperatures in Greece means swim breaks between classes!
Students are having the best time since arriving in Kalamata Saturday. A group took an optional excursion to Olympia, where they saw the ruins of ancient Greek temples and ran the track for the first Olympic Games. Back at the beachfront hotel, students are getting up to all sorts of activities—like watching the Greek national volleyball team—while they soak in the last week or so of classes.
