Trip I, Day 1

Things I saw today (ok, technically yesterday, but it's still yesterday in EST) include:

  • The world's longest suspension bridge (the Rio-Andirio), footed on gravel because the Gulf of Corinth is separating at 30 mm/year

  • The possible burial location of Lord Byron's heart (at Messolonghi).
  • A man stop traffic to buy two kilos of grapes from the back of a truck.  The grape seller then returned to his lunch and beer at the nearby taverna.
  • Macedonian tomb architecture, hundreds of kilometers from Macedon.
  • Shipsheds!!!!  (Like drydock for ancient ships.)

  • A beautiful pink sunset while swimming in the Gulf of Cornith at Naufpaktos.
