Adrian and I spent the day visiting many churches around Athens, enjoying local food, and getting sweet deals.
I had a lesson today. We began studying melismatic (multiple notes per syllable) chants.
Adrian and I played a game of chess.
In a few minutes, we will leave for the train station, take an overnight train to Thessaloniki, a bus to Ouranopouli, and then a boat to St. Anna's Skete on Mount Athos. Pray for our safety and a wonderful experience. We will light a candle for you.
I might not have internet access for a few days, so I will keep in touch upon my return.
