In the month after my last blog, I gave a lecture on the research on Thessalian religion that I had been doing at the CIG, and it turned out to be a well-attended lecture. I was also pleased with the grand total of nine people who tuned in to watch the lecture online. It was a great experience; the feedback from the audience gave me questions to look into for my future research.

This year, there were numerous things that I did that I did not think I would do during the tenure of my fellowship. Among them, was wearing a dress for the Frocktober party at the American School, performing a small role as a Roman dinosaur-emperor in a student-directed musical, and eating frog legs in Ioannina. I have made an enormous number of new friends in Athens this year and my fellowship would have been a lot less colourful without them.
