OK, so here's my first post from abroad!
My arrival date and time in Athens' center! And it's pretty hot!
I only came here because that's where flights come into. So I arrived in the afternoon and spent the evening wandering around Plaka, old town. The next morning I woke up bright and early to beat the crowds and heat to make my way to the obligatory Acropolis. I must admit. It is pretty impressive.
Pork gyros: the classic fast food here and normaly about 2 euros.
Greek salad. I always miss my veggies abroad. This was quite delicious and I took a leisurely hour lunch to break from the heat and ppl watch, one of my favorite pasttimes.
OK, so Athens itself is nothing too impressive. After the one night and day, I was on my way for the real reason why I came to Greece...
