Rebekah, Codey, and I are about to depart for our return to Greece!
My first trip to Greece found me in Athens for five weeks, studying Byzantine chant in daily lessons with Dr. Ioannis Arvanitis. It was a tremendous learning experience. This trip will allow me to follow through with some dreams and plans unrealized in my last trip. Over the next few weeks, we will travel through Greece as pilgrims, beginning in Thessaloniki, visiting a friend and his family in Trikala, a brief stop in Athens, some island hopping, and finally, if God wills, we will venerate our Lord's empty tomb in Jerusalem.
Our flight leaves Chicago in about an hour. Next stop: Zurich.
