After the cooking class we had a scavenger hunt around the university, neighborhood and all the way out to the old city. We had to do things such as take a picture in front of the Greek church down the street, find out how much laundry detergent cost at a certain store, etc. The hunt was divided into the things around the university, the neighborhood and the old city. Our final stop was to end up at Xefoto to turn in our sheets and have dinner. I was on a team with my roommates (Paige and Anna) and Andrea who lives across the hall. Once we finished the neighborhood and the university, we took a cab to the old city, while walking around we got very turned around and lost. We showed a handful of people the address to where we needed to get to but no one knew where we were going. It was starting to get dark, the streets were deserted and we needed to be there by 7 (it was 6:55). We ended up finding it in the end but we were unable to finish all the items on the list.
We went back to the same place for dinner (Xefoto) as the night before. We walked in and the owner remembered us. I needed up having the village salad for dinner while the other girls got food from chilies next door. We sat at the same table as the girls we eat with the night before. They had ordered lamb and let us try a bite, which melted in your mouth like butter, it had been slow cooked all day. Toward the end of our dinner a live band started Greek music and a bunch of people started dancing the traditional steeps, and playing the tambourine and showering people with paper confetti. The place was loud and alive. Our dinner always last two hours filled with lots of conversation and wine.
