Yep. It’s Saturday. These seemingly boring chores that we’ve completed today are now going to serve as a way to inform you about Greece, from Kiersten’s perspective. (Disclaimer: I’m not Greek. So someone else may feel free to disagree with these Greek “observations turned conclusions”.)
Breakfast + dishes: Bread is definitely served at every meal. And it’s pretty much always fresh, so we each had bread this morning. And yogurt is huge here, but not like Greek yogurt in the states. This yogurt isn’t as sweet, so you often add honey to it. Washing yogurt bowls isn’t very fun, though…
Laundry: Our clothes were hung on the roof at approx. 1 pm. I had a shirt that was dry before I even finished hanging the rest of the clothes. They were all dry, including jeans, by 2 pm. That’s dry, hot Greek air, friends.
Cooking lunch: Ok, so you won’t learn much about Greece from our lunch, but you learn about us! I don’t know that a day has gone by that we haven’t made toast or eggs (and most days both). We made rice/vegetables/eggs stir fry sort of thing today. We were fairly successful 🙂 Prepping for real life…Oh, and Greeks eat meals later than most Midwesterners, so we ate around 1:30.
Naps: Greek people like to nap in the afternoons. We like to nap all the time. I took a long nap this morning even before lunch.
Cleaning! Our room came to us stocked with cleaning supplies that we put to use today, guessing each thing’s purpose by pictures, since the labels are Greek 🙂 No vacuuming, though, because most of the floors are tile in Greece!
This is probably the least-exciting blog post you’ve ever read. Sorry, I just really enjoyed this chill day. And we may do something more adventurous tonight, so don’t assume we’re always this boring 🙂
