Tonight I am spending the night in Assos, a surrealistically picturesque town situated along the rocky cliffs of the Aegean sea. Those of you familiar with early church history might recognize the city as where Paul departed for Lesbos from on his third journey. Reportedly he stayed here until Luke met up with him. Also, Aristotle lived here for three years. It is amazing to feel connected to so much history.

Speaking of connected, I write this post from the lounge in my hotel where a bunch of Turks and myself are watching the Türkiye National team play Portugal in the first round of Euro 08. Turkey is most definitely outmatched in this one but we are hoping they can pull it out.
