Oh I am having such a wonderful time!|
Greece is really much more entertaining than even I had hoped. There are really quite a lot of attractions here. Beautiful pottery to hold perfumes, to name one. Lovely hair potions to name another. In fact, Regulus and I ran into the most interesting little shop on the corner of...well someplace that wasn't very noisy. The pottery I mentioned earlier has an extremely useful ability; it rejuvenates itself and maintains the freshness of whatever's held inside without requiring anti-soaking charms as most of its British competitors. Really, I'll have these imported from Athens from now on, I think.
Oh and sun. It's quite extraordinary, it's everywhere! Not even in Spain did I ever see such splendid light everywhere. Oh and everyone speaks perfect Latin, it's amazing. I think even their house elves probably have some kind of training in it. Although most of them, wizards I mean, don't actually speak English but that's all right. Words can get in the way sometimes.
I bought the most fabulous hat! It's got one of those flowers on it that opens during a certain time of the year, and it's supposed to last for 10 years at least. Not that I'm actually going to keep it for ten years, Merlin! Ha, how very amusing, keeping one hat for 10 years. I've never met a person who would do such a thing, I don't think.
Regulus and I will be going out tonight, see the city a bit more, a wonderful man that's staying just two doors down the hall has invited us to attend a celebration of some kind, he assured me it will be smashing.
