After a great night's sleep and a bit of a sleep in, it was so much fun to do my hair, put on makeup, and wear clothes that weren't Lululemon (as much as I love my Lulus). I felt like myself again instead of the sweaty hot yoga mess I've been for the past week!
So the Canadian girl was a bit slow getting ready, and we had to wait for the next bus in this quaint little bus shack. It took forever, but we ended up getting on some other bus than was recommended to us, and it took us directly into Syntagma Square in the heart of Athens. The bus even had wifi!
We continued to wander and suddenly I found myself on the same street as Leah's and my hotel when we first visited Athens at the end of August. I knew where I was! In no time at all we found the vegetarian restaurant recommended by our yoga teacher, Michelle. Above is the yummy lunch that both L and I had... buffalo mozzarella and tomato panini with corn chips and guacamole. Delicious! A had a huge veggie burger that she loved too and as well as some crazy pink lemonade with beet root in it.
It was Saturday and it was time for cocktails following our return home from Athens. Make that MOCK tails.... club soda, pineapple juice, and lime was as good as it gets during yoga teacher training :(
A great day off drew to a close with sundowners on the rooftop! But not before another mystery was solved. Check it out!
All week during morning meditations I'd noticed this on the rooftop In my morning fogged mind, I'd looked at it and though, oh cool, they have one of those huge barbecue things that can roast a whole pig. I wonder if we get to have a barbecue up here! This rooftop would be perfect for entertaining! Never once thinking, Devon, it is a vegetarian yoga studio and guest house. Why on God's green earth would they have one of those big pig roasting barbecues? And why would you think you'd have a MEAT barbecue while living here? I had a big moment of clarity when A referred to the solar powered water heater on the rooftop! I guess no pork barbecues on the rooftop for this yogi! Wow...I guess you can take the meat-eating girl out of Kenton, but you can't take the Kenton out of the girl!
