Where I stayed

Flag of Greece  , Attica,
Friday, October 9, 2009

Writing this from the first class lounge of the "Blue Star Paros" en route to the island of Santorini, where we settle in for a week. It will be nice to unpack and relax for a while.
What can we say about Athens? Mad, chaotic, a little bit scruffy, but a lot of excitement and fun.
We boarded the Happy Train for a tour around the Plaka and then up to the Acropolis, which was as expected, pretty amazing (and crowded)
The streets are quite narrow and crowded with tourists, bikes, cars, dogs, cats and the Happy Train which pushed it's way through all of it.
Diinner last night at a pleasant cafe in the Moustrakis Square (rough spelling) consisted of Creme Chicken, Sea Bream and a greek salad followed by a chocolate soufle, Vedema wine and Alfa beer. After getting slightly lost on the way home and not seeing any drug pushers or prostitutes, we had a last look at the Acropolis from the balcony and retired to our twin beds (pushed together).

Find that taxi driver!
What? No drug pushers or prostitutes, find that taxi driver and ask for your money back!

The photos of the Acropolis are amazing!

Language please
Hi J & J, Have you found out whether that Greek letter is M on it's side or W on its other side, and also how to pronounce it?

Also could you ask the driver to slow down a bit please because there is at least one North Queenslander still in France ogling his new stereo speakers! Thanks!
