Today we arrived in Napflio. We came by bus and it took about 3 hours. First thing we did was find the beach (after we put our stuff in the hotel) with Shawnda. We met her friend Adam and wrestled every day at the beach while dad was at the conference (where Adam was also supposed to be) that night we went on a boat cruise organised by daddy’s conference from 8:30 till midnight.

Today we went to two museums. The first was the Pellaponese Folklore museums the second was the War museum. After that we had lunch with some of our friendsGeneral Marco and General Veronica that night we stormed the Bourtzi castle (which used to be a dungeon) on an Island so we had to shuttle the troops over by boat. We took the castle at unawares so the gate was open and the castle was easily taken when we got back the others officers and I made our battle plans for the next day while we had Jelato.

Today with the hope that we could take Palamidi castle at unawares also. Unfortunately after Bourtzi they were keeping a closer watch we had to climb the 999 stairs to the castle as well as count them (because we decided not to go up the road). We also hauled up a battering ham to break down the door then when we got inside the castle all the troops got lost but we finally took the castle and climbed down the stairs in victory and went to the beach to celebrate our second victory in a row. For more celebration we went to the conference banquet and went to the beach there and fought with Adam. our appetite is weird when there is food we will eat it even though we may not be very hungry whenwe are full we are also not full.
