Greece!

Hello from the gorgeous Greek Island of Santorini: think paradise. :) I know that I'm a huge fan of superlatives, but this time they're warranted. Yesterday, was quite possibly the best day ever: went sailing, climbed an active volcano, rode a burro up a very steep hill, and watched a gorgeous sunset from no-question, the town of Oia, famous for its blue rooftoops). (btw, I'm never riding a burro again; it's v. scary.)

Before I tell you more about Santorini, I guess I should catch you up on my life. I realize that I've been woefully out of touch the past month, but it's been a little crazy on this end. Things wrapped up at work on July 14th, which was hard. I really loved the people I worked with at Northrop Grumman, and will definitley consider returning to NGC after HBS. Anyway, so the next day, my friend Steve, whom I've known since like 6th grade, came over, and bought all of my furniture - all of it, which was awesome. He had just moved to LA, and needed stuff, so the timing was perfect. It's actually amazing how things work out sometimes. Spent the weekend packing up, saying goodbyes, and moving out. (btw, if you're moving cross-country and not taking furniture, I HIGHLY recommend UPS; they're great, and most of my stuff arrived early.) Left for Boston on Tuesday the 18th. Checked into my apartment with no problems. (The apt. is actually pretty spacious, and quite nice) Was in Boston for 36 hours, long enough to meet up with a couple of friends, lock my stuff up in my room, run to Target, and leave again. Headed out for Spain on the 20th, and have been in Europe ever since.

Spain was great: had a chance to relax for a few days before my friend Sara and I took a tour through mainland Greece. The tour was amazing: even though it was entirely in Spanish, I learned a ton about history, art, arquitecture, and culture. We went from Athens to Olympia to Delphi, finishing in Metamora. Greece is AMAZING. It's funny how many of the mores and customs of the western world are tied into ancient greek life. Anyway, Sara and I were on the tour for about a week. She went back to Spain on Monday, and I caught a ferry to Santorini. I LOVE travelling alone. It's really amazing who you meet when you're by yourself. In the last few days, I'm met three guys from the Basque country, a German photographer, and a woman who teaches Italian at a German school. Pretty cool.

Anyway, I'd better get outside; it's very nice out. :)
