I was not in Athens very long - just a day. I ate delightful moussaka by candlelight at Daphne's (a restaurant, not someone I met), scrumptious meatballs by daylight at Taverna Tou Psiri, and studied wines at a great place called Brettos. This is a wine bar dedicated to Greek wines from many different regions. Thank God; if you ask for a glass of wine in Thessaloniki, they ask you, "red or white?" Oh, yeah, I climbed up to the Acropolis and spent the afternoon on the top of that hill overlooking all of Athens. It was quite warm, but it was also quite breezy. Again, all photos published here so far are from my phone.
*Note to Self: Always agree on a price for a cab ride in advance where the bus drops you from the airport - easy prey! 12€ to go about a mile? You're welcome, Greece.
