Hollins has made touchdown! Watch out Athens, American college students are upon you. With no formal lessons under our belt, our opening blog post will detail our navigation around our student apartments. The unusual snow brought out the city’s hospitality. Athenians stopped us on the street to apologize for the bizarre weather this time of year, and even gifted us a free bowl of warm soup.

The last excursion of the day was bombarding a local grocer. We can only imagine the workers’ thoughts when seeing 20+ English-speaking college students descending through the doors. No one left empty-handed. Baskets filled to the brim with local yogurt, cheeses, and fruit. We left with smiles because our stomachs would soon be filled.

Tune in tomorrow to read about how much trouble we’ll get into on our first full day in Athens. καληνυχτα!

    This is so awesome! I went to Greece with Profs Salowey and Richter when I was at Hollins and I had so much fun! I hope that you all have a great time! I can’t believe that it snowed – that’s so cool! I remember that the food was so good!!
