Goodbye London, Hello Athens

(Above) The Parthenon. I'ma be there soon.

This is just a short post made to satisfy my desire to make everyone I know jealous. Read on.

We have been conceded an extended weekend this week, just because the program feels like giving us one. Some will stay, some will go over to little Ireland, a number have chosen ye old attached-to-the-country-we're-already-in Scotland, and a select few are getting closer to coolness by venturing to Spain. But two brave men are flying on a 1500 mile pilgrimage to the cradle of Western civilization, the birthplace of democracy, the city with 3,400 years of history behind it. As you watch a Canadian broadcast of the 2010 Olympic Games I will be walking the ground where olympic seeds were sown. When you all wake up Friday morning I will be on a one-day three-island cruise in the Mediterranean Sea. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Can you say Athens? I knew you could.
