Day 86 – Ferry to Athens

woke up
walked around deck
talked to robert and vilson (like wilson (cast away))
talked about all sorts of things while waiting for the ship to dock
offered to drive me to athens with them
went down to their car
car with bike on top crashed into upper level of cars
got in truck (very sketchy)
drove for a while looking for a place to eat
finally after a small pay toll place stopped on the side
got some meat on a stick, they made me eat twice as much as i would have and a coke
from there rode
and drove
talking and talking
trying to communicate as well as i could in italian
lots of talk of cars
got a little worried when they suddenly weren’t following signs to athens
it was alright because we were just headed to vilson’s town, north of athens a bit
tried to park but cops were behind us threatening, so we went for a while and the cop closely followed behind us
really a bit worried but he left
found a place to park
went and had an enormous meal
could not finish half of it and i felt so bad
they were paying for everything too
ate as much as i could
then got my bags from their truck, gave robert the copy of harry potter
went to the station
exchanged address/phone numbers
they gave me directions and we said farewell
i figured out better directions for myself
went to the acropolis stop
went to the athens studios and they were closed
went to the check in place
got keys
came back with a small chat to guy from NH
went up into the room
met people there
chatted for a bit, completely exhausted
really needed a shower but the towel wasn’t dry
went for a walk with zack
they went out
took a shower
realized i had left the shampoo and stuff back at the ancona hostel
spent the next whatever hours updated the outline (to this very point!)
and now going back and possibly writing up a few days… although i need a short break of some sort
wrote the rest of the outlines
went to bed
woke up to loud sex
