europe: ferry to greece

Wednesday, August 25, 1999

I’m currently traveling from Rome to Berdessi where I’m hoping to catch an overnight ferry to Greece. I spent this morning on lines to get tickets for this excursion, getting yelled at by 7 annoyed, rude, and bored train ticket people (the strongest possible argument for the privatization of the train system) and searching for Rosie who, by my seemingly always erred calculation, as 45 minutes late after spending this morning exploring Rome with Gregory and his diving friend who arrived two days ago. Rosie and I haven’t civilly spoken since I finally found her at the train station, and, if I have anything to do with it, we won’t later either. (I’m sounding much more vindictive these days.)

I am looking forward to a relaxing week on a Greek island. Depending on how tonight and tomorrow goes, I might forego the tourist route and spend my days and nights relaxing instead of sightseeing. I’ll play it by ear when I get there.
