Hi from Athens,

You will be here very soon. I hope you are ready. Get that bag packed. Bring a camera, film, batteries, memory cards/sticks and extra film, memory, and batteries.

Some last minute advice.

1. Bring your passport!!!!! You can't travel with out it!!!!
2. Bring any medicine you might need!
3. Bring some cash and a ATM card, it works over here. Be sure you know you password, if you remember it as a word be sure you know the numbers because sometimes the letters are not on foriegn machines.
4. Pack light, it is not a fashion show.
5. Bring a little liquid soap to wash things out
6. Drink plenty of water on the flight and during the trip
7. Get some sleep tonight and on the flight
8. Remember our motto for the trip: Plan ahead but be flexible!! We have worked very hard to put together a great trip but some things might happen along the way, so we will have to all adapt.
9. Remember we are a team lets work together and watch out for each other as we travel.
10. Enjoy your trip, it really is a once in a lifetime trip.

Here is our schedule for Friday. I have been working to make our stay here in Athens the best we can make it

This is my best guess at the times:

Friday the plane is scheduled to arrive at 10:10 AM.
I will try to come to meet you at the airport.

At the airport you should change some dollars to euros, or withdraw some money from an ATM, for pocket money for snacks and water.

We should arrive at the hotel about noon.

12-1pm Get checked in and freshen up, get your cameras out etc.

1pm go to the Theater of Dionysus, 1:30-2:00
Climb to the acropolis, visit the acropolis musuem 2-3:30
Mars Hill enroute to the Agora
Agora and museum 3:45-5:30 or so.
Leave for the hotel about 6 or 6:30pm,

Have dinner at 7 or 7:30pm at the hotel.
Rest up for our flight to Istanbul.

I will see you in Athens on Friday.
