I made it to Skopelos and it is beautiful. Can you believe they use donkeys to pick up garbage instead of trucks. There are chickens running wild and kittns and dogs are everywhere. We arrived last night and were given a proper welcome. We got kisses and hugs and a welcoming meal. BBQ chicken and pork and various dishes. Absoluutely delicious!!! Then we sang songs and learned to dance the greek way. I'm preety good! Our hotel is at the top of the hill and overlooks the sea and the town. My little room has a kitchen and a wonderful view.
The printshop is out of this world. It is the largest one I've ever been in. There are two etching presses, and a huge litho press. The view is also incredible from the printshop. As soon as I walked into the printshop I suddenly felt joy and became highly inspired. I even beveled my plates with unusual care! We had breakfast in the printshop and had an orientation to Greek life. Then Linda showed the students how to bevel the plates. It was all we could take today because all of us had a crazy hangover. Too much wine. So, now I'm in the town. It's remarkable here. I'm so glad I came. I hope to write more, but right now I still have a hangover, and am extremely tired. Siesta time for me.
