Wanted to share some pics from late:
We left Greece Thursday bound for the Suez Canal. We're slated to transit on the 23rd, but that could change tonight, who knows if we'll actually go through. A lot is up in the air because of the latest world war... Should have some info in the next few days.
Could be dire consequences if we don't transit - extreme restructuring of the voyage...
Nonetheless Greece was great! Olivia's mom and dad were there, we hung out a lot, went to Agistri island one day. Liv ran "the" marathon on Day 1. We rented a car in Piraeus and drove to Marathon - dropped her at the starting marker and followed her the whole way there. It was a hellish route - hot, traffic, highway. She struggled but made it all 26 miles in the end.
Also got to catch up with John - journalist from last voyage I covered the train crash with. Was fun to see him - we got lunch one day in Athens.
I joined a field class the last day with Avi Spiegel, a professor from San Diego. He reminds me of Shuford. We took a ferry to Aegina island.
Feeling good, uncertain of how things will proceed but safe and happy.
much good love,
