Thanks Rob! Athens, Greece


Hey Rob, thanks for the support back on my birthday. I hope you're working on your master plan. You've got all the elements there, I know it will happen. Can't wait to get back to LA and have some good nights out on the town with the fellas. So, let me tell you how your dough was spent.

Back in Athens, I had lunch at a restaurant near my hostel one day, after touring the Acropolis. I ordered a chicken plate stacked with that doner style chicken, fries, salad, pita, and tzatziki. I ordered a Lemonade flavored Fanta and fell in love. Not only with that lemon soda but with this cute brunette sitting with her two friends at the next table. I eavesdropped on them a bit as I sat, eating alone. I tried to figure out where in the States they were from. Then I called upon the gods and the power of Kaiser for the cajones to say hello.

They were talking about their trip to the islands and I was still trying to figure out where I was going to go. So I said, "Where ya headed?" I think they had assumed that I was Greek because they seemed stunned that I spoke English. They explained that they were on a tour taking them to Mykonos and a slew of other islands. I asked the cute one where she was from and she said Spain. I sarcastically said, "Yeah, I can hear it in your accent". As usual, my sarcasm did not translate and she thought I was serious but I clarified that I she didn't sound Spanish. Turns out she's from Florida and moved to Spain a year ago. Her friends were visiting from Florida and they were all in Greece together to take the island tour. Pretty uneventful conversation but at least I got a little practice breaking out of my shell and actually speaking to the girl instead of stealing glances at her over my meal. Progress man, baby steps.

And now, a view from the top of the Acropolis in Athens:
