Rooms are provided in local pensions and hotels (rental rooms) in the village of Kavousi. Students will share a room with one or two other project members. All facilities provide basic sheets, pillows and blankets, and have attached toilet and shower facilities. Sheets will be changed by the pensions weekly. Soap and toilet paper are sometimes provided, but are never sufficient for American consumers, so expect to be buying your own soap and most of your own toilet paper (available at markets within the village).
Meals: Food will not be provided by the project. Students should allocate additional $1,400-$1,600 for food for the duration of the project. Small markets for buying sundries, breakfast and lunch supplies, as well as a bakery, are located in Kavousi. We will facilitate a visit to the bakery every morning before work. For evening meal, it is recommended that students patronize the local tavernas and other eating establishments where a variety of short-order and prepared food can be found. There are presently three cafes in the plateia (Central Square) of the village that will prepare food in the evening; two tavernas on the main highway in the village and one at the Tholos Beach Hotel, where most students will be staying.
