So in Mykonos I met somebody. His name is Bogdan. We met at the restaurant he works at where Erin and I went to eat dinner on Tuesday night. He was very nice and chatted with us as we ate a waffle with ice cream. He told us about gay dancing on Mykonos (I was very excited he knew about this), rolled me my third cigarette (i had the first two of my life on the island of Naxos (sorry family, after 26 years of growing up with Selby smokers I finally succumbed to Europe's peer pressure)), and made me a flower out of a napkin. We talked for a while and made tentative plans to meet up later but i was feeling ill after that cigarette so we just went back to the hostel.
The next night however we went back to the same restaurant and there was Bogdan. He seated us right away and we chatted a little more. After our meal I went to the restroom and on my way back there he was. He came right up to me and asked me if I was mad at him. I said "no, why would I be mad at you?" Then he said "no, no. I asked if you will marry me." Romanian accents can be hard to understand at times. Mad at me, marry me, they sound the same. Something I will have to get used to. Anyway, of course I said yes and we made plans to get married Wed. night at the church. Erin and Bogdan's friend, Niko, were to be our witnesses. I told him I may not make the wedding though as I was taking a ferry to Lesbos, en route to Istanbul, later that night. He said he would wait for me all the same.
So I missed the wedding but I know it will all work out one day. I'm just so happy to share my joy with all my friends and family back home in the states via this blog. As they say in Greece, YAMAS!!
