Every time I try to have fun digging in the dirt and finding history, something happens. Normally that something is you. This time, it’s stupid politics. One of the students found an exquisite necklace in the dig but Dr. Harvey, one of the original researchers, is claiming it. So there’s bickering and posturing, etc. Harvey needs the necklace to continue his grants and his permission from the government. The student needs it to kick-off his archeological career.
There shouldn’t be any argument, since all the kids had to sign off all credit of anything they found as property of the company running the dig. I had to sign the same paper, so did Cassie. I’m not sure why the kid is arguing so fiercely, no court would grant him ownership.
The commotion has gained the attention of the Greek government. They decreed that no further work be done at the dig until resolution. Giles was disappointed; he had been hoping to tempt me into staying longer. He suggested that we continue our trip, since we’re not tied to the dig like the other students.
So Cassie and I will be leaving tonight to go backpacking in the mountains.

I’m glad you think Kurt is cute. Don’t worry. Yes, Kurt is still in mourning, but he’s starting to come out of it. He’s been dancing, smiling and laughing. And it’s not like I’m going to have anymore time with him this (working) vacation.
Some stupid senior is causing trouble at the dig, so all work has been suspended. Daniel and I will be hiking to a mountain village he’s visited before while the whoopla dies down. Dawn’s going off to Cleveland since Dr. Giles is going to be so busy here getting it straightened out.
