So today was a cool day, guys! We started off with a great continental breakfast on the sixth floor of our hotel. By the way, our hotel is on a hill that overlooks the city. No big deal. After we broke our fasts, we headed on to Apivita, which is an awesome company that uses bees to create all-natural cosmetics and other related products. We were able to speak with a director of international development, tour the facility with the HR director, and check out some of the garden where they grow their plants.
After Apivita we went to lunch at a a local favorite and ate another 800-course meal, which was really good! Then while we digested lunch we traveled to Chemnav, a shipping company based in Athens. We had a great Q&A with the president and CFO and learned a lot about their company and the industry.
We then went back to the hotel and took a short break. Some of us decided to take a hike (aka struggle up a gigantic hill) to take in the city all at once. And although it was a difficult climb, it was well worth it. The view was beautiful.
