Definitely different from American hotels. To be honest the toilets here make me nervous. But the beds are twin sized and the rooms so small they barely fit. The bathrooms good sized but the showers very different from American showers. Like I said, different, but not worse.

It's almost 5 pm and I am a bit tired - left the hotel this morning about 10:30 to do the Rick Steves Athens Walk - to get a bit familiar with central Athens and to see where the major sites are in relation to the hotel.

The archeological sites have been constantly raided and our guide made many references to the original pieces being in the British Museum.

... in the mountains -- and a fair number of these karsts were dotted by monasteries dating back to the 1300-1600s. Our luck with the weather held and we were treated to absolutely staggering views of the area over the two nights we spent there. We visited five monasteries, did some hiking, and scrambled up and down a number of mossy covered outcroppings without tumbling to our deaths. For such a highly anticipated trip, I was probably expecting too much; as it ...
... s a lot quieter than Rome. The streets are wider and there seems to be much more breathing room. All the buildings are white with balconies.
2. It reminds me in some ways of Minnesota. There are trees, grass, and forests (we live right next to a national forest) all over. The people here are very "Minnesota nice". Everyone is so hospitable! Many people will stop on the street and ask if you need help if you look lost, and I've never seen happier ...
