One thing I didn't realize is there are a lot of cats and dogs in Athens. They don't belong to anyone really. They belong to everyone. Everyone in the city will feed them. They aren't shy. I had a cat crawl into my lap today to ask for attention. I petted him, and he drooled on my pants.
One thing nobody really tells you before you travel to Greece is you can't flush toilet paper. There. Now it's out in the open, and everyone who reads my blog will know. Instead, you place it in a trash can. Obviously, unclean Greek restrooms smell a lot worse than the gross gas station toilets in the US.
Tomorrow I move on to Crete, and I don't know how much internet access I will have there. I will also be working all day with bones. I'm excited and I know the island will be gorgeous, but right now my heart belongs to Athens.
