It was easy--roos- ters woke me up much earlier. We ,rolled up our gear in the dark, and left as the sun turned the sky and the water pink: a beautiful morning. We drove north to Rion, where we caught a ferry straight away and crosled back north to the mainland of Greece. We stopped for lunch just before leaving the sea to head north to Delphi. Before eating, some of us took a short swim in the very sal- ty water. The showers on the beach turned out to be dry, so now we- 're all covered with salt. My hair is in stiff braids, and I don't plan to touch it until tommorrow mor- -- ning when I'll rebraid it. We "free" camped again tonight, which means no bathroom facilities to wash it. Delphi was a magnificent spoL Its several temples, amphitheater and huge Olympic stadium with stone seats are situated high on a mountainside with a spectacular view. Ancient Greek tradition holds that Delphi lies at the exact cen- ter of the earth. Originallly Del- ,phi was a center of primitive wor- ship dedicated to the earth god- (tess by the cult o.f Gaea. The site was continuously inhabited from 1400 b.c., but the Delphic oracle was at its height in the sixth cen- tury b.c. Later the Romans also made majo.r decisions only after eonsulting the priestess here who delivered the oracles of Apollo, god of inspiration and prophecy, as she stood in a trance-like state over a cleft in the earth. After leaving Delphi, we drove slowly north through mountains, circuiting Mount Parnassus on a very curvy, narrow road. We went as far as we could, then stopped and camped by the side of the road. Lirtda and Holly danced in the headlights to Linda's new ac- quisition--a Zorba the Greek tape. When she's tired after a long day, Linda often gets giddy. Thursday, August 24, 1978 I to get up at 5:00 and fix scrambled eggs with sau- teed onion's and green peppers this morning. We left at 7:00 and drove across the fiat Greek plains to Meteora. It is quite astonishing the way the rocks of Meteora sud- denly tower over that plain. We drove up into them, gaping all the way, and stopped at three Greek Orthodox monasteries, built on ,top of the rocks in the four- teenth ,to sixteenth centuries. I couldn't go into the first one be- cause they wouldn't permit wo- men inside wearing shorts, trou- sers or skirts above the knee. I had s,pelcifically worn my hot jeans rather than shorts to be modest, but the monks were even more conservative than I had an- ticipated. At the second monastery Em- ily let me "wear her skirt so I could go in with Mark; we have toured several Greek museums to- gether, and enjoy exchanging ideas about the exhibits. I was almost sorry I .went in, as I abhor the whole gloomy Christian martyr trip, and those monks revel in it; some of their paintings showed saints being boiled or flogged. I was content after that to walk around with Holly and photograph the seemingly tiny monasteries clinging spectacularly to their ,massive granite rocks. Mark was on an especially ob- vious martyr trip today, perhaps inspired by the monks; I remem- ber he held a twig of thorns up to his forehead at our lunch stop. He was sick, as he hadn't been eating for several days again. At first he wanted to fast; then he ran out of drachmas to buy food when we weren't near any banks. He wasn't contributing to our kitty because of his fast so he moped around rwhile we ate lunch today and refused ,to eat any of it. After leaving Meteors, we drove all afternoon to Kavala. On the way, we passed through Thesselon- iki for the second time. Despite its musical name, it has got to be one of the ugliest cities I've ever seen, in various states of disrepair with junk piled every- where. Hundreds of big, white Red Cross tents are set up there for refugees from a recent earth- quake. We entered Kavala just in time to witness the red sun squeaking through some clouds, turning the whole sky pink. Kavala is a pret- ty cry with high rise buildings on hills next to the sea. It re- minds me of Sausolito, California, in a way, but it's bigger. Our campsite is five kilometers out of town, on a beautiful little 'beach of its own. It's very civil- ized; even has refrigerated drink- ing fountains. Holly asked me to share her tent tonight, as Emily is back with Daniel for a couple of farewell nights (we get a new driver after Istanbul). I would be really happy if. I could remain with Holly. She's an ideal tent- mate---considerate and cheerful. It's nice Co be around someone who enjoys my early morning bubbliness for a change;i Holly even sings first thing when she waives up, much to the consterna- tion of some of our tour mem- bers. (to be continued) Thanksgiving Community Dinner Reserve Sunday, November 21 at 5:00 p.m. to be at the Sagua- che Comunity Building located at 525 7th Street for a community dinner. Families are asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share. If you would bring your shared (fish in a disposable pan, you make the 'clean up' crew very happy. Serving utensils for the buffet will be provided by the Saguache Recreation Board. Another community sharing idea was for everyone to bring a non- perishable item to the Communi- ty Building which .we can then provide to our Sagnache Food' Bank for this holiday season. Volunteers along with commun- ity and church organizations in the Town of Saguache are pro- viding: Sliced Ham, Turkey with dressing and cranberries, mashe and sweet potatoes with gravy, green beans, rolls with butter, beverages - water, coffee with condiments and table service. Volunteers will also be prepar- ng a thanksgiving meal to be de- livered to shut-ins earlier in the afternoon who are in our Town. If you are aware of a shut-in who would like a meal brought to them, please call Carla Quintana at 719-655-2089 or the Town Hall at 719-655-2232. Happy Thanksgiving Season to Everone and see you at the Cotn- munity Building. Thanksgiving Dinner for Homebound On Sunday, November 21st, a Thanksgiving dinner will be pre- pared and delivered within the Town of Saguache botmdalies to those who are homebound due to illness or age. For the 22nd year, the philosophy of "everyone should have a holiday meal" is being promoted. The meal is being do- nated by local churches, organ- izations and families with volun- teer drivers delivering the meals that afternoon. Saguaehe Recrea- tion Board inherited this event from originators of this communi- ty idea: Saguaehe Women's Group. If you are aware of someone ,who would enjoy a Thanksgiving Sunday holiday meal, please con- tact Carla Quintana at 719-655- 2089. Please let Carla know by Wednesday, November 17th as to who needs a home delivered holi- day meal. If the individual lives out of the Town of Saguache boundaries then arrangements for pickup of the dinner needs to be made with ,Carla Quintana. The meal can be picked up at the Community Build- ing in Saguache located at 525 7th Street. Dinners will start beng delivered between 3:00 - 3:30p.m. Questions: Contact Carla Quin- tans at 719-655-2089 or call 719- 850-0051 and leave a message.
