Athens, Greece

Bus transfer from the ship to the hotel didn’t take too long, then we took a short walk to a nearby restaurant for a bit of Greek food for lunch, followed by the hotel shuttle to the old town. We four walked around a bit, wandered through the huge park behind the parliament building, then decided to take the subway to ride and look. Athens is a large city of 4.5 mil, a bit big for our tastes. We did see several additions of stadiums and buildings built for the ‘04 Olympics, as well as several old ruins visible from the bus and/or subway. There is old stuff everywhere.

Dinner back at the same restaurant...hey, it was a known, close, and reasonable. No pictures to post today...maybe tomorrow night:-)...Ciao!
