First week down and two more awesome ones to come! This week has been such an adventurous one. We attended a Greek Political Party's Information Session, hiked down a mountain and across a river, swam in the Libyan Sea, toured and explored beautiful Chania, hung out on the beach (multiple times!) and took tons of pictures! Crete has been an amazing experience so far. The best part, however, is getting to learn with everyone. Together we ask questions and learn about world politics. Some of us also decided to take a course in Greece so that we could attempt to talk to the locals about life on Crete! This summer is turning out to be the best one I have ever had!
