... overlapping the life boats on deck 6. Lovely accommodation and our bags have been delivered so after unpacking we have a walk around before lifeboat drill at 5.15 then change for dinner and head for Martini's bar for a pre dinner cocktail. A lovely meal in the light and airy Grand Dining Room and then off too bed for a good night's sleep being rocked gently whilst we head for ...
The next day was leaving day so we smashed it out to the Piraeus on the metro with all of our 47 million bags. It was just as busy out there than in central town... if not busier. We sorted where we had to be and we had plenty of time so grabbed a drink and what ended up being quite the pricey lunch... a few sticks of souvlaki ended up costing more than we would usually spend for dinner.

The other things I like about Greece so far is that even in Athens it is still cheaper than Rome, but I would not go so far as to call it cheap. The food is delicious and the people seem more warm and welcoming. It is a nice change of pace. We have a few more days in Athens and a few more things to see :)
