Thessaloniki TGIF

Sometimes comfort food takes the form of US food chains. In this case, we found a TGIFridays right on Aristotileus Square in Thessaloniki. It was something we didn't realize we had needed until we went.

Athens At Night

These are some of the last photos taken by Andreas' phone ... before it was stolen on the Athens subway. They're pretty, but not worth the phone.

Athens Metro

The subway stations in Athens are also archaeology museums.

Below The Acropolis

These statues are below the Acropolis on one side, in different areas. The building with the flag is at the top.

"Ancient" Track

This stadium was built for the first modern Olympics in 1896. It's very pretty, but I don't know why they call it ancient. It also looks uncomfortable to sit in for any period of time.

Temple of Zeus

One of the nice things about Greece in 2021 is the relative lack of tourists. You can actually see and do things and experience them fully without having to worry about swarms of people. This is the Temple of Zeus and a view of the Acropolis from there.  Things are quite accessible.

Bits Of Athens

All these photos were taken in the center of Athens. When we went in July, we stayed close by the Acropolis Museum.

Greek Drinks

All three of these bottles were gifts from our May visit to Greece. The sparkling was from Andreas' photography tour. The wine was me being all about Albania with the Albanian waitress. And the tsipouros was from our food tour in Thessaloniki. We go off to Greece again tomorrow - Athens, this time.
