Athens
Arrived in Athens, Greece…. By the way, one of the best Metro systems I have ever seen. What is all this talk about Greece being broke? Which one is broke? I haven’t seen any signs of it yet. Maybe I should leave Central Athens and see for myself

Gyros in Greece are €2 and they are better than any of the nasty ones in US… They are cheap and filling street food….

'Dinner in Athens! The food is excellent here and half the prices of Italy...'
'The appropriately named God's Restaurant... The food is heavenly'
'Staying near the Acropolis Metro Station.... Nice area of town'
'Every where you turn here you see gyros being sold in every corner. Funny thing is the gyros are supposed to be pork not beef or lamb like it is in US'
'The monumental Acropolis at night...'

Walking in Athens is a tour of history, very ancient history…. Aristotle, Plato, Socrates walked some of these streets

'This is the Greek Parliament... I reckon this is where they all decide not to pay their debts to their international creditors.'
'Monastirakis Square... One of the more lively public spaces in Athens.'
'This is the stadium in which the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896. It still seats 60,000 people.'
'This is the remains of the Temple of Zeus.... This was built before Jesus Christ.'
'The Greeks love their flag and here it is hoisted on top of the Acropolis, the highest point in Athens'
