Kalimera! Good morning! We are quite fluent with the morning greeting as we make the rounds at the bakery and coffee shop to start our day on the island of Aegina. The students are doing such a great job with the blog posts that they leave little for me to write.
This morning they are off to climb to the top of the mountain. Eleni Dellagrammaticas with husband and daughter are leading the group on this expedition. Those of you that have followed past trips know it is best for me not to attempt mountain tops when days of walking are still in front of us.
As the students described we are meeting amazing people that are living out some of the things that we are reading and talking about in our classes. These people are seeing what needs to be done and responding. Our students are doing the same. We are very proud of the willingness the students are demonstrating to learn about the place they find themselves and how they are helping each other.
We are so fortunate to be able to interact with the members of this community. Learning more about what they are doing here. As a professor it is a privilege for me get to know more about these students. They too are amazing people with unlimited potential. To their parents, Thank You for sharing them with us.
