You are good.
How did you managed to get us on the same flight as the Oxford group? Dr. Giles is as articulate and intelligent as my first impression at Cassie’s interview. He went out of his way to chat with me. We talked about various languages and past digs. He knew about my academic history, but seemed determined to make his own judgment on the matter. We talked for most of the flight to Greece; afterward he offered me a consultant position at the dig.
I accepted. Cassie needs the experience of a real archeological dig and since they had the governmental permits and the location accomplished, it would be easier than trying to persuade an ex-girlfriend to let us scope out her dig as I had planned. He knows that we won’t be spending the entire trip at the dig, but doesn’t seem to mind. Another plus with this arrangement is that I’m making good contacts within the Greek government on behalf of Oxford and Giles. If something was to happen in our line of work, I might now know people who would and could cut through the red tape.
Cassie sends her love (and thanks).

This trip will be phenomenal! We traveled on the same plane as the school trip and for the first week, we’re staying at the same hotel as my classmates. A lot of the older kids are really serious about the archeological dig, but others are planning on having fun too. Oh! Daniel made nice with Dr. Giles and we get to spend some time at the dig too. Apparently, Dr. Giles is short on people who can correctly supervise digs and since he wants an extra pair of eyes, I get to come too! Fun, fun!
