No one wants to wake up in the wee hours in the morning, especially NOT on vacation. However, Anastassia (my sister) was flying in around 9 and with a 3 hour drive ahead of us to Athens, there were a lot of grumpy faces. Nevertheless once we checked into the hotel for the weekend and jumped in the pool, everyone’s spirits turned around. We explored the capital and visited a few historical sites. The best part was being able to see the Acropolis and parts of the Parthenon from the streets! I tried to limit the photos but it was hard to choose from so many good ones!
Dedication for soldiers lost in battles whose names were unknown.
Notice the front plate? 🙂
