Clearwater, FL YAL Convention 2005 Log

Monday, May 30, 2005

As we learned from last year, too many people leave on Monday afternoon or leave early Tuesday morning to make staying on Monday night worth the hotel stay. With a flight scheduled at 8:00 P.M. we hit a sparsely attended BBQ at the hotel around 1:00 P.M. Having checked out from the HoJo we were left wandering the Hilton and hanging with others who were flying out that day.

We had managed to schedule a ride with a really great cab driver who had driven us to the concert on Saturday night. He began the trip by saying that he had just picked up Toula, Koula, and Soula and that they said that they met us this weekend. I applauded him on his quick wit and ability to think of three Greek girl names that rhymed, but he said it was funny because it was actually true. This cabbie was a Philhellene at heart and had great respect for what the Greeks in the surrounding area had done for the economy and quality of life in the region.

As we boarded the plane and had three Greeks follow us that we hadn’t met or much less remember seeing during the weekend, we realized that to paraphrase a friend of ours from the weekend, it would be a long time until we saw that many young Greek adults all in the same place at the same time… at least until DC YAL Weekend in November.
