Hello from Greece! Starting off in the capital city, Athens.

It’s not a city with the most unique architecture, but I can appreciate the jumbled masses.

The green metro line has graffiti all over the cars. It reminds me of 1970s New York City!

Countless treasures at the National Archaeological Museum.

My friend Thomas, who I met on a tour in Mexico a couple of years ago, was kind enough to show me around his city, and take me out to a great seafood dinner. Thank you Thomas!

Now that’s a meal!

If you come to Athens, exploring the Parthenon is a must. 3000 years of history lies on that rock up in the sky.

Theatre of Dionysos.

Odeion of Herodes Atticus. Built from 160AD – 174AD, it is still used for performances today.

There are a few temples on the site.

The Parthenon is a former temple on the Athenian Acropolis, dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron.

The impressive Acropolis Museum features many of the precious sculptures from the Acropolis site.

The top floor replicates the Parthenon layout, and places in the existing original sculptures.

Athens has graffiti everywhere! Some of it is beautiful street art, some not so much.

Church of Saint Panteleimon of Acharnai.

Arch of Hadrian.

The Pinball Museum in Athens. Only 10 euros for unlimited play. A great break from sightseeing.

Goodnight Athens!
