Athens PhotoJournal

Athens has been great.  I still have not adjusted to the time difference, it is 6:30am and I have not slept since noon yesterday.  At this point, with a day left, I have just abandoned the idea of adjusting the time lag.  I have never done well with jet lag.

This that have impressed me about Athens:

Beauty.  The buildings are amazing.

There are stray dogs pretty much everywhere.  Cats too.

There is amazing hospitality.  Not a single person let me pay for a meal/ drink / bus ticket until four days into my trip.

Things that I think are really weird:

Smoking is everywhere, and by smoking I mean chain smoking.

There is really no way for the disabled to get around the city.  I hear stories about families hiding members of their family that have been in an accident.

Graffiti is everywhere.  Except the subway, which is pristine.

I have seen one bike rider in Athens, and have yet to see someone exercising.

All in all it has been an amazing trip.  A great way to put a different spin on what your reality is.  The beauty of travel.

Some great time for reflection.

The great lens I have been using is from Pro Photo Rental, which I highly recommend.
