Daily Journal: Thursday, 23 March 2017

Decided to take the day off from touring Athens. Saw quite a bit during my first two days and now need to complete the settling in process by going to buy some groceries to make beef stew tonight.

On the way to the store, I got my hair cut. And this time I had a good conversation with the person cutting my hair to avoid another buzz cut. This time I was 100% satisfied with the result.

Really enjoyed making my way around the nearby grocery. The added twist in Greece is that most of the packaging is written using the Greek alphabet.

Good news is that I found some Worcestershire sauce! Woohoo! All the other ingredients for the stew are common. Had a good time trying to communicate with the person at the meat counter regarding the cut of beef I wanted to buy. Other than that, I was in and out in less than 30 minutes.

By the time I got back, it was time to start cooking. Also updating my blog and making a birthday phone call to the U.S. Tonight, I’ll have two days of posting to do.

Tomorrow I’m going to head over to the U.S. Embassy to confirm the visa rules for Europe and for the U.K. I’m not 100% confident that I understand them.

Tonight, I’m hoping to go to bed early. Would rather get up before 8:00 and enjoy the fine weather here in Athens.
