Greece 2010 - Athens II

We were treated to a full day of FREE TIME in Athens - with lots of options to occupy our time.

Andi hosted an optional excursion, which about a dozen of us joined (and loved!).

The rest took to the streets for exploration on a beautiful day. Some bought tickets for the "jump-off" bus tour and got to see many of the sites. Others went by foot and saw many of the same sites (but endured a full day of walking). The sites included Parliament, the Plaka, Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Arch and/or Library, the ancient Agora, the beautiful city Gardens and the Olympic Stadium.

More toured museums on their own, went shopping or spent a day of leisure in Athens. All reported back having a great day.

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
