  • The Party's Over

    August 29, 2004

    This may be my last blog before returning home because I didn't know how much access I will l have to the Internet on Monday. We won't be returning home until Tuesday, but - knock on wood - it's been a great and memorable time here in Athens, and to use a Greek word, it's been fantastic.

  • Kerry McCoy and Canon...

    August 28, 2004

    Good Morning Lehigh Valley. Or G'Day. Or Khali-mehra.

  • Clearing the situation...

    August 27, 2004

    Have to remember to tell the web guys to put the Google-block on these blogs.

  • Riding out the final days...

    August 26, 2004

    Just a few more days left in Athens and I can't wait to leave. Not that it hasn't been great here, but I miss the faces of home and the love I get from my family that you just don't quite get on the road, no matte how welcoming the Greek people have been.

  • Staying cool and searching for energy

    August 25, 2004

    Just had a visit from Andy Loechner, the Secretary General of the International Softball Federation, who lives in Lancaster.

  • A day of cycling and wrestling...

    August 24, 2004

  • Battling the heat in a "mild summer" in Athens...

    August 19, 2004

    BLOGGING ON THROUGH THE SUN -- ATHENS | Heat is relative, and like many relatives, doesn't have to be liked. But even though the temperatures have been reaching the mid-90s here, it's really not that brutal. You walk, you sweat. It's a fact of life that most Southern Europeans simply accept, like a relative overstaying their welcome. For a person who doesn't relish heat, I think it's worse back in Pennsylvania during a heat wave because the humidity is so dense. When I was in Arizona, and even Aruba, the sun was baking hot. The sun in Athens hasn't approached that status yet, but some of the locals have told me this is a mild summer so far (note to Lois: if you want to come here, plan it for January).

  • Cycling time trials and fighting the heat...

    August 18, 2004

    August 16, 2004

    The days seem longer, the efforts later and the rewards unknown so far. I'm sending all these stories back to The Morning Call and have no idea how they look. Frank, our photographer who is a German national, has asked me to stop using him in my blog, so I will, but for the sake of my wife, if I say I went to dinner with someone, someone is a nudge, nudge, wink, wink meaning Frank, not Anna Maria, the girl who served me my first ouzo.

  • A Sunday in Athens...

    August 15, 2004

    Frank and I finally had time to sit down to a nice dinner last night (barely) and got seated at a table before 10 p.m. at a restaurant in the Plaka section, which is renowned for its good food, shopping and crowds.

  • Late nights and confusing days...

    August 14, 2004

    Spectacular comes up short in describing the Opening Ceremony on Friday night.

  • Fighting the jet lag and the language barrier...

    August 12, 2004

    On Wednesday, I thought I was over my jet lag. It seemed so simple. Stay up the first 30 hours or so of the trip, get a good night's sleep and you're ready to go. And Wednesday was a long, hard day with plenty of energy drained.

  • Something happened on the way to Athens...

    August 10, 2004

    Star Date Aug. 10, 2004: Happy Birthday to me!
