Greece at last!
After a long voyage across the pond, our 17 excited students finally touched down in Athens and officially began their European adventure! The sun was shining across the Acropolis, and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day to herald the start of our wonderful program.
After settling into the hotel to cool down and fight off any jet lag, we rallied the students for a quick tour of the surrounding Plaka area before venturing through the Monastiraki flea market to get to our restaurant. After devouring some fine local cuisine, we celebrated the commencement of the program with some scrumptious gelato and Greek yogurt as dessert. We concluded the evening with a quick trip to our hotel’s rooftop to get one last glorious look of the lit-up Acropolis before heading to bed. All in all, a terrific start to the program!
