Where I stayed

Flag of Greece  , Attica,
Saturday, August 9, 2008

Athens was surprisingly nice. We really had low expectations as nobody that had visited really spoke highly of the place. We felt it was very clean, dynamic, and a fun experience. The metro was immaculate as it was built years after other European countries so they were able to capitalize on all of the learned lessons of other countries. Interestingly, Athenians treated it very well considering the city is a pretty big one. You rarely saw any graffiti in it unlike New York's trash-trains.

I was a big, big fan of the gyros. They really put our gyros to shame. Cheap too.
We also saw the Acropolis which lit up in the night on the top of the mountain. It was an amazing sight and our hotel had an unobstructed direct view of it from its rooftop bar.
