WE MADE IT! We finally arrived in Houston yesterday! We basically stayed up and left the hotel in Nafplio at 2:30 am to ride, by bus, to Athens. At the Athens airport we said goodbye to Carolyn and David and then we flew out of Athens at 7:05.

We arrived in Paris at 9:30 and literally RAN to get to our connecting flight which left at 10:35. We got there in time but the flight was delayed until 11:05. They let us board and while we were standing in line we saw Hakeem Olajuwon there! He let us take a picture with him too, since we are a photography class and all! :) Turns out he was on our flight!

Anyway we boarded, finally. This flight felt SO LONG! Nine hours and 47 minutes of sitting there and doing nothing. I really couldn't go to sleep and so I listened to my ipod and played a few "video games". We touched down in Houston an hour late at 2:30 and went straight to Customs and Baggage Claim. After that we went through the exit doors and my mom and Cordelia were waiting for me!

I am so glad to be home! I loved Italy and Greece but it feels wonderful to be back home!
