…of Athens

May 17-20, 2012
Athens, Greece

(Wiki)

Overall, Athens was underwhelming. I suppose the really pretty part of Greece/”Athens” are the islands, especially Santorini, but I just didn’t get a chance to go this time around. Unfortunate. Athens itself is a bit of an industrial city, as in it’s not exciting 90% of the time, except those few thousand year old monuments sticking out randomly in the middle of the street. European cities are like that, just random monuments strewn about as if the rest of the city forgot that they even meant anything and flourished around it. Interesting, but odd to my American mind where any sort of monument of more than a hundred years is encased in glass and roped off with velvet.
