After a delayed flight we had a few problems
finding the hotel.
Lucky I had met two girls at baggage claim and we were lost together!!
And we also found two more girls wandering the streets looking for the same place!!
Finally I was in my lovely single room with the air conditioner pumping away!!
I got up the next day and washed my clothes.
The laundromat was excellent - the girl was so friendly and chatty and they had free coffee - woo hoo!!
I then had to move hotels (just up the road)
and I went sight seeing.
It was quite strange to be in the same place Brett had been just a year before for the Olympics.
It was really really hot!!
I went to the Acropolis and wandered around.
I then walked up to the Ancient Agora area.
I found a perfect spot for a photo standing on top of a pillar base but got yelled at and couldn't end up taking it!!
I then walked back around the Acropolis to
the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
It was pretty cool.
I remember the archery at the 2004 Olympics being held there.
I then caught the train back to the hotel for our pre-Island Tour meeting.
I met Penny and Scott (who I had been with in Lagos) in the street - how random!
I went to the meeting and found Theresa and Nicola (from baggage claim)
Our tour guide for the Islands was Jacqui.
Theresa and Nicola and I decided to make all our accommodation bookings together as triples to save money.
I had friends already!
Lauz and Ro who were found in the street were also going to be on our tour.
I had burned some photos that morning so I went to the internet cafe to send some to Dad for the web site and I sent a group-email to everybody and then went to bed. (click here to read the Group Email that Tanya sent to all her friends)
We had a 5.00am wake up the next day - and Mum was in charge of calling me to get me up - a wake up call all the way from Cairns!!
