Greece: The Arrival

Our team waiting in Rome to depart to Athens

Our team waiting in Rome to depart to Athens

It has been a long day of travel, but the team is finally here in Athens and ready for our mission. We left on Friday at 3:45pm out of Atlanta and after a brief layover in Rome, we arrived in Greece at about 1pm. The team is exhausted as it was a long flight, but we are also excited about finally being here. We have gotten a bit of authentic Greek culture and cuisine. Today the Greek Orthodox church was celebrating saint Pavlos and had a marching band and well choreographed church bells. We stopped into a small shop and got real gyros! They were so good, especially after all the airplane food. Everything is going well, more pictures will come soon, but tomorrow we start in earnest. God Bless.
