Some pictures!

In Italy, and apparently Greece, they do not really use dryers. When I lived in Rome, I was always a little entranced by the freshly clean laundry blowing away in the wind.

While in Italy, I had a round little Italian woman to do my laundry. Here, I do it myself. This has me meditating on the fact that (as I pin things to the clothes line, which is in full view of everyone who steps foot on the property), at this moment in time, I really wish I did not have such a penchant for choosing such brightly colored underwear. It is, frankly, quite embarrassing.

Its like the explosion of a Barbie party up in here.


And now, at Caroline's request, I will share some pictures with you.

This is my bedroom, with the newly risen sun shining in (look, Ma, I made my bed!):

This is my living room/dining room area. I am sitting on that couch, right now, as I type, and I am occasionally looking out those doors at the sea, and the mountains.

Stepping out those doors in my living room, takes you to my patio. And from there, you can see this. This is at dawn, just before the sun makes her appearance. Lovely, no? Water surrounded by mountains. Is there anything better?

And here, just moments after the sun has arrived. In certain lights the water and the sky are the same color, as you can see in this picture. 

And there you have it. If you are lucky, at some point you might get to see pictures of Athens. And maybe my arm, just so you can see how brown I have gotten.
