... watch some things on TV here and there we decided to take full advantage and watched a movie each night we were in Athens. That night despite some initial resistance on my part, Bree talked me into watching My Big Fat Greek Wedding and it was actually a lot of fun.

The sun is high in ...
... plus we were sitting on the right side of the plane, right in both ways and got a nice view of the whole caldera as we came in to land.
We went to the taxi stand and got into a taxi which already had another couple from Oregon, USA and the bloke charged us 30 Euros per couple even though our house owner said it should cost from 20-25 so he got more than double his usual fare but it was late, and it was quite a distance so ...
