You will know more when she returns from her trip.

She is leaving pretty soon, about 36 hours to go now.

I did not know that the island belonged to Great Britain at one time.

I wonder if adriana knows much about her country's history. She does speak Greek at least.

That is good that she can at least speak it.

Maybe I can get her to teach it to me.

Does she speak it fluently?

She says no, but she seems to converse with her family pretty easily so I would say she is near-fluent. She reads books in Greek as a challenge, she says.

Sounds like she can speak it pretty well. Is her whole family making the trip?

What is the sister like? Are they similar in looks and habits?

To be honest they are pretty different... adriana is shorter, better-looking, seems more articulate (probably because she is 2 years older). Not really any similar habits apart from them being pretty sleepy a lot of the time... when I was over there the 2nd time I went, they both fell asleep watching A Beautiful Mind.

Then how the heck can she fall asleep on it? I have watched my favorite movies hundreds of times and have never fallen asleep.

She had got no sleep the night before. Poor thing just wanted to have a rest, on my wool cardigan.

Yes, I remember that. Going to make some soup see you in a bit.

Made the soup but now it must cool a little bit before I stuff down my throat.

Sort of like a vegetable soup and then I put some noodles in there.

You should give some to adriana, she would love that.

Are you kidding, I can't get my sister to try my food. She thinks that because I am a guy I can not possible cook anything.
