After a long day, or night, or both… I am not sure what day it is, my family and I have arrived safely in Athens.
As I said in a previous post, I am back over here to study Greek. I have not used it much yet.
I was able to use other languages I have studied, though.
Today, one of my kids left a passport on an airplane in Madrid. Using every bit of Spanish I have ever learned, we were able to recover the passport.
Later, a German man who had never visited Athens asked for help. I guess he thought I looked German. I don’t think I do. Not tall enough. Anyway, since he spoke no English, I was able to help him find his destination and was able to practice German, as well.
So, far, I have not been able to practice Greek. The Greeks hear my attempts and immediately switch to English. This is one of the greatest challenges to me here, but no matter. I am determined to learn Greek, so I will keep trying.
Anyway, I don’t know what time it is and have not slept in a while, so goodnight. Well, maybe. My daughters are running on little sleep as well and, as a result, they are slap happy. In fact, I am hearing a lot of statements that end in “No big deal”. Evidently, this is Jimmy Fallon’s fault.
