When I got to the Bed and Breakfast, I was greeted by the friendliest man. He made me fee right at home immediately. The BnB is kind of old and dated, but it's within a couple of blocks of the school. After unpacking I walked down to the "supermarket." There I encountered my first language barrier. The nicest cashier waited on me but neither one of us spoke the other's language. I think that was just the first of the language barriers I will encounter in the next 10 days. I have to say that the language barrier makes has made me a bit homesick.
The girls are in Greece until tomorrow, so I am on my own. I may try to ride a bus to the colosseum or I may take a much needed nap. I plan on walking down to the school in a bit and take a look around down in that area. I can't believe that about 80% of the cars you see are those little smart cars or scooters. Some lady almost hit me on her scooter while shouting unpleasantries (I'm sure).
I have to say that this is much different than New Zealand.
