A year and a half ago Carla and I took a tram through Athens to Pireas Port where we caught our ferry to Santorini. Looking out the window all we could see has garbage, graffiti and people living in cardboard boxes. At the time we were happy about our decision to skip Athens, but now I’m thankful that I went back.
Matt shows of his cabbage shredding skills.
This is the Acropolis museum. Unfortunately the warm sunny weather begged us to stay outside, I guess the museum will just have to wait for our next Athenian trip.
The Acropolis is perched on top of a hill in the middle of the city center, around it are fancy cafes, million dollar apartments, parks and embassies.
This guy had an interesting metal bowl-like instrument called a Hang that he played by tapping it in various places. It almost sounded like a harp or a piano.
Matt and I were lucky enough to see a changing of the guards ceremony. I took a video and will post it soon.
This is my new favorite park for obvious reasons.
