Just Getting Started

After 19 hours of tiresome travelling, worrisome texts and tears from my family, and battling a jetlagged sleep schedule in the 95 degree heat for the past two evenings, I have finally found myself relaxed in a small (air-conditioned!) cafe in the beautiful city of Athens, Greece. There is no denying that it has been a little difficult adapting to the ruthless heat and accepting the fact that I am a little out of my waters culturally, but nonetheless it has been an incredible experience. And I still find it hard to believe I have the opportunity to stay here for the next six weeks.
