BMA Alumni and Friends Greece Tour

Monemvasia Doorway with Flowers

Bass Memorial Academy Alumni and Friends enjoyed 10 days of May sunshine and pleasant temperatures in Greece. Our arrival was inconvenienced by an extra hour and a half of bus transfer from the airport to Hotel Center Square. Traffic in the streets of Athens halted because of protests in Syntagma Square against the government's financial austerity measures. But we quickly forgot traffic when the hotel owner/manager presented us with a heavy gift box of baklava from the best pastry shop in the city.

The Greek Yogurt with Greek honey served at breakfast every morning created addictions in most of us. Since we returned home we've tried to find something to compare from our local grocers, but most of the "Greek Style" yogurt here is simply a bad counterfeit.

At Monemvasia we made a stack of stones in memory of our true friend, Carolyn Culppepper,
who always asked if we could stop so she could get her feet in the water.
