As Eva and I were sitting in the Chicago O’Hare airport, I pondered aloud, “I wonder if there will be any celebrities on our flight today.” Eva laughed and brushed me off, but as we boarded the plane a few minutes later we noticed a commotion in the first class compartment. A flamboyantly dressed black male layered with chains and tons of bling was struggling to get his luggage in the overhead bins. We noticed a huge clock hanging from his neck and realized we had our first celebrity sighting of the trip – Flava Flav!!! Mom and Dad, you probably haven’t heard of him but he is a member of the 80’s rap group public enemy and is currently starring on a reality dating show on VH1, Flava of Love. He graciously agreed to pose for a photo with us:
Today, we had a long layover in London so we checked our suitcases and ventured into the city for a few hours to explore. We did a whirlwind tour and caught Tower Bridge, London Bridge, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliment, Buckingham Palace, and Harrod’s Department Store.
We just got into Athens late tonight and we’re staying with Sophia in her cute little flat close to the center of the city. That’s all for now, tomorrow we’re headed to the Acropolis and the Archaeological Museum.
