... in Athens before meeting the rest of the tour group at 6pm. We caught a taxi from the airport to the city centre, which we had trouble communicating to the driver. It was 34 degrees, and because my body has been acclimatised to English weather I was not used to the heat. We found a cafe to get some lunch and walked around some of the local shops.

... by the Romans who also built baths and other buildings on the site- including a church. Much of the site was destroyed by earthquakes but there is still plenty to see to be able to understand. The site is excavated by Greek and German archeologists who don't believe in reconstructing it.
