Yesterday a woman from church called and invited me to play Bunco with 15 other ladies tonight. I told her yes and decided to make a practice run to her house from mine. On the map it looked easy. After getting directions from her and calling Ted to make sure he would make the practice run after dinner I was all set. We began our journey at 6:10 pm. Walked to the 407 stop, waited 13 minutes, and hopped on that bus where we ended up at Planketias, a metro station. So far, so good. Debbie will appreciate what happened next. I went to a ticket counter, but it turns out it was the wrong counter. (It was the same counter I'd always gone to to get train tickets) So back upstairs. Purchased two tickets for a short run on the suburban train. Rode the train to a station that sounds like Nerrantiozza. Got off, but since neither of us had ever been there we had no idea what to do. Most metro stations are underground and we were looking for the green line to Kiffissia, so we took the escalator down. Nothing. Lost again. Finally someone pointed to the platform to Kiffissia. It was above ground, where we usually caught only buses. We hopped on that metro till Maroussi Station. Disembarked and had to find the bus we were then supposed to catch. At this point we had been enroute one and a half hours. Turns out we still had a 40 minute bus ride before us. I looked at Ted and said, "forget it." We went home a different route, thinking it would be quicker. We arrived home at 9:20, after hopping off the bus to buy a few groceries. Ate dinner at 9:30pm.
