Today at breakfast they had eggs with little egg bowls for the hard-boiled eggs. I thought this was cool because it reminded me of these little eggcups my dad had bought when we were younger. They were similar to these bowls but a little smaller so that egg sat in it better. I remember how he brought them back from one of his trips to Europe and explaining how they ate eggs in Europe. When the hotel had the eggs and egg bowls it reminded me of that story and it was a fun memory to remember on the trip.
Today we had a lot of different options of things we could do. One group of students was going to climb Mount Parnassus. If you weren’t doing that you had a free day until dinnertime. I chose not to climb the mountain as I was worn out and needed a day to relax. Some of us were going to take the bus down to the next town but we missed the bus and decided not to do that. I enjoyed spending the day walking around to the shops, having delicious Gyro’s for lunch, and taking it easy in the town.
That night we had dinner at the same place we had lunch the day before and I was looking forward to it because the lunch food was really good. We were having Moussaka, which is like Greek Lasagna. It sounded really good since I like Italian Lasagna. But I have to be honest it wasn’t good at all! It was probably the worst meal we had the entire trip. I’m not sure if I just wasn’t in the mood for it or I was expecting something else or what but it looks a lot better than it tasted. However I think that is pretty good odds for a 10 day trip and only having 1 bad meal.
This was our last day in Delphi. It was a beautiful place to visit and almost surreal coming from Santorini. Most people say when you go away you have to choose the Beach or the Mountains and on this trip we were able to visit both! I really liked the order we did Greece in. We started in Athens which is what you see on TV for Greece and very metropolitan. Then we headed to the island of Santorini with the beautiful mountains and water and views and then we ended in Delphi with the mountains. It was like the trip climaxed a little bit in each location.
