We were hugely fortunate to be in Athens at the same time as my colleague Antonis. Not only is he a good friend, he put a roof above us, wheels under us and took over a lot of the talking and ordering. It was a treat after my initial excitement about Japanese, slight familiarity with French and eagerness to speak German passed and my difficulty with Polish and complete inability with Magyar became mentally exhausting. Our stay in Athens was definitely the cushiest part of our trip across Europe. The food in Greece was bewilderingly good and it’s something I’m still dreaming about now.
