Hi grandma and grandpa, I'm so glad you liked all these blogs. It's fun to do them, and show people where I've been. I had a feeling you'd like the Manhattan incident. Look out for a few more blogs, in a week or so.

Everything's great here, just couldn't find wifi last night on my train ride. Also, I missed that other comment about Santiago. I'm glad you liked the photos and the narrative. It's still up there as one of my favorite places in Spain.

THE WALL......
RWas Hadrian a Roman Emperor ?..,and why was the wall built ?..Remember that Hamilton is a scottish name, and you may has family history in the area. Have a great time in Scotland, and don't gorget the "Deer Valley" region...Grandma and Grandpa

The Wall
Hi Grandma and Grandpa, Hadrian was a Roman Emperor of the 2nd century AD, and the cool thing about the wall is that no one really knows for sure why it was built. To keep out the Picts in Scotland, some think, or maybe just to finally end the giant Empire. I'll keep an eye out for anything family related, and the big whiski (that's how they spell it here) I'll pass through on Thursday.

Matthew: Enjoyed your pictures from Mykonos...grandma loved the"white" buildings and stone paved streets with all blue trim..Grandpa
4th July 2012

Hi Grandma and Grandpa! I'm glad you liked the photos - the houses are honestly my favorite part of Mykonos. This is where it's fun to just wander around.

the day
I'm really enjoying your blog, Mathew. thank you and best wishes for more surprise days/memories. Consider not admitting so often that you're lost. I can feel your mom's anxiousness from here.
28th June 2012

Thanks for the advice, Uncle Bob... but it's usually fun to be lost! Glad you're liking the blog.

Matthew: Do you meet/see many other tourists on your daily travels?? And ware are most of them from..Europe,USA,Middle East,Other...or are most just the local people visiting these places? Have you meet anyone of interest??.........Grandpa
24th June 2012

The last time I came across an American was in Athens. I'd have to say that probably 95 percent of the people are from countries in Europe: Italy, Germany, I met a couple from Denmark yesterday. Also quite a few Russians.

Matthew: Are the "dead" still in the tombs and graves...?? We are really enjoying your daily travels and pictures....Grandpa
21st June 2012

Hi Grandma and Grandpa: No one is actually left in the tombs. They were cleaned out by grave-robbers a long time ago. But it's neat to think that maybe at one point in time these people were actually buried here. Glad you're enjoying the blogs!

Matthew! Heard from Sid that you were on this epic adventure. Some of those pics are surreal and amazing that you get to see these places with such a rich history. You have quite a packed and exciting itinerary, hope you are having the time of your life my man!

Sounds like the trip is going well so far!
All the family misses you Matthew! We are all jeolous and want to be there. You would be a great tour guide with all the knowledge you have on the history and locations you are seeing. Everything is fine here. Love you, Dad
