Farewell from Greece
By Janice Friesen    July 20, 2007 -- 10:41 PM

This will be my last post from Greece.  We are leaving by train this morning to Athens and then on to Vienna, Austria where we will be spending a week.  I am not going to try and blog from there.

Here are pictures from the Corinth Canal that I have not had a chance to share yet.

Yesterday I had time to talk with
Panyotis, the pot painter who I talked with in other visits and also to go to the orphanage and try to find the sculpture.  Unfortunately, I did not find the sculpture, so I cannot update you on how it looks now.  We also went to look at the basin that was discovered at the end of the dig last year (2006).  Here is a picture of the full basin.  It was interesting to see it finished.  They think it may have been next to a building where they were making wine.  This basin is where they stored the finished wine.

I will check back for comments or questions and answer them in the next week and then I plan to reflect on the blogging project in my other blog in the next week or so. 

It is at http://malahinitx.blogspot.com.

Until next time, Janice

Thanks for the comments on the picture.  It is pretty stunning!  That is really the way it looks. I am glad that people are finding it and reading.
