June 2 - Day In Nauplion

After our banner day yesterday singing in the tomb and the amphitheatre, our guides (Sophia and Cassandra),our tour manager (Kostas), and our drivers (Mike and Apostolos) led us on a short tour of Nauplion pointing out the parliament buildings and the church where we would be performing. They also shared a story of the person who brought the potato to Greece, not Mr. Potato Head, but Count Ioannis Antonios Kapodis!
Free time followed and as usual we visited the shops for some retail therapy. In the afternoon we headed to a local winery, where we were given a tour of the winery and tasting of Greek wines. A  lite lunch was served with some traditional Greek dishes including spinach pie, tzatziki , eggplant, beautiful fresh salads, kabobs and baklava!

After our fabulous wine tour, we headed back to hotel for some relaxation around the pool and to rest up for our concert that evening.

At 6:00 p.m. we went to Vouleftiko (the Parliament Building), for our performance with Nauplion    Symphonia, all female choir, where we shared our love of music. The audience was animated as we performed our selections under the direction of Valerie ,who kept the audience engaged throughout the entire concert.

 After our performance, we went to a local restaurant nearby where we were treated to traditional Greek food and local wines. Back to the hotel for a good night's sleep to re-charge our batteries for a day of leisure. You know what we did.... shopping in downtown Nauplion.

 Tomorrow we are off on a cruise....Giassou! That's goodbye in Greek!
