Ah July, I LOVED July. No – even better – I adored it. From the sixth until the twenty-seventh I was playing the archaeologist in Thorikos (take a look at diary #1 for pics of the start of the campaign), the last few days were all about getting used to being back home in (rainy!?) Holland. I’ve got a lot of photos to share, so take a cup of coffee, sit back, relax, and enjoy watching! =D
IN THE SECOND HALF OF JULY I…
…was still busy excavating on this b-e-a-utilfull hill, called the Velatouri. The theatre is its most spectacular feature, but there are more exceptional ancient remains, completely unknown to most Greece-/Athens-tourists.
…had a rough time getting up at five o’clock in the morning e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y, but watching the sunrise was completely worth it.
…was extremely happy with my Palladiums (the ugly ones on the left). We decided to take this photo of everybody’s Palladiums to – kind of – honor them. Ofzoiets.
…listened to Athens Deejay in the partycar! Seriously, this is the best radio station ever if you’re in a car at 05:45 a.m. and in need of some wake-up music =D. You can even stream here!
…was impressed by the pottery in Thorikos’ archaeological museum. I love these kind of primitive paintings.
…was pretty scared our excavation would burn down, but fortunately, this fire raged on some hill tops further away. According to the size of the black and ashy area, the fire must have been huge!
…drank water from these lovely smiley-cups during survey. On the right some ancient remains in the rocks (originally, there were marble slabs with inscriptions placed in these holes).
…climbed to the top of the Velatouri, which was quite HIGH.
…got this from a friend. Super silly, but I like it =D.
…met this super young, Greek, white catty, cuuuuuuuuuuuuuteness!
…bought new, cheap (but leather!) flip-flops.
…watched Hercules in an outdoor cinema, how appropriate! <3 It’s not completely historically correct by the way, but you had probably guessed that already.
…sent this ‘I MISS YOU’-selfie to my Thorikos-friends when I got back home, HAHA.
…got this from Luuk, what an amazing idea =D. Guess Blow won’t let me do this to her though.
…shot my first outfit post in weeks! Featuring my red suede jacket.
…was very happy to get this in the mail. No need to get bored or sad when home-alone-with-Thorikos-nostalgia.
Coming month, I’ll be busy with work most of the time. In the summer period, when colleagues are on holiday, everybody needs to work double shifts. Besides, I’ll try to make as much time for blogging as possible!
