Beautiful Disaster. That just about sums up the last 24 hours. With 40+ students scheduled to arrive in Greece bright and early tomorrow morning the last few days have been sort of a whirlwind. We’ve been running around Athens and Glyfada trying to make sure everything is perfect (or as close to it as possible) for the students. Two messy people in one hotel room packing 50 welcome bags and care packages did not bode well for the cleanliness of room #215. This picture on the right was taken mid-hurricane as you can tell, but all the care packages are done. Fortunately we cleaned the room up and are awaiting the arrival of the students.
Unfortunately US Airways had other plans in mind and cancelled the flight out of Atlanta for 30 of the students on the program causing them to miss their connecting flight. Hopefully this little set back has everyone getting into Athens only a day late and our programming isn’t thrown off too bad. But I guess when you are arranging 50 flights across the world you have to expect some delays/set backs. C’est la vie.

HIGH: I’m still pretty excited to meet the 8 students that are actually arriving on time tomorrow!
LOW: I just feel bad for the students delayed in ATL.
