The Beautiful People?

So, we are in Athens right now LOVING every second. The first day was rough as we were adjusting to the time difference (9 hours ahead of Utah)I found this quaint little Hotel in the heart of all the hussle and bustle and near the Acropolis. Here is a great view from the roof of our hotel...

We got in, tried to stay awake as long as we can and went to a little cafe where we were served a 4 cheese, tomato crepe type lunch. Interesting, but very good. We lasted until about 3:30 but unfortunately, your first day dealing with the difference in time is like trying to wake up from anethesia. Very difficult to function. We napped until about 9 and then got up and headed out to make some friends. We are in the SoHo type part of Athens. Very cool, gorgeous people. We found a cute outdoor cafe for dinner and then went to mingle. I'm so not kidding when I say we stick out like square thumbs. Probably the two blondes, gorgeous Asian and the Amazon. Lots of people asking us where we're from. I got suckered into buying this Boutainierre(the flower thing that guys wear to prom) from this darling little boy who was speaking choppy English to me and he handed it to me then he wouldn't take it back. I gave him a Euro for it. I apparently have SUCKER written on my forehead. The best part of the night was walking through the crowds and this guy stopped me and asked me where I was from and went on to tell me that he wanted to massage me and that I looked like Marilyn Manson. I told him if he ever wanted to get somewhere with a girl to NEVER say that again. He said it was my eyes. I've attached a picture to remind you all what his eyes actually look like. GREEK DOUCHE. He told me it was a compliment that I have rare eyes...blah blah blah.

Was your hair wet or something? I don't know, I've had the Euro jet lag and it does weird things to your body, maybe you had something funky going on. None the less, being compared to Marilyn Manson just ain't right.

I SO didn't know you had a blog... just came in from Amy's... why am I always the last to know? ;) I want to hear all about Greece and your new job and then some. Let's get together again soon. Anyway, I bet the loser meant Marilyn Monroe too... two M's... he was just confused. I love watching your pic slide show. And yet, I'm strangely jealous of all the fun you've had without me.
