Florence and I are in Athens, we’ve had a really wonderful time until… about fifteen minutes ago. We just had pretty much the only negative part of the trip happen… a cab driver just ripped us off to the tune of about 40 euros. :(

Athens is a pretty grungy city, but aside from the asshole cab driver, we haven’t really had any other problems. (Although walking at night in the neighborhood of our hotel is also totally sketchy.) I don’t have all that much internet time left, but Santorini was really really gorgeous, and well worth the trip.

Today we saw the Akropolis, and various other historical tourist traps. I’m sure anyone who is curious will hear all about it later. Hopefully I can sneak a few photos onto flickr before my time is up.

  1. Glad you’re having fun. Shame the taxi driver was a jerk.

    I’ve gotten back home now, after your fantastic party and a week of excessive dining (and a little bit of breaking-the-mould debauchery) in Canada.

    Hope you have a pleasant remainder of your trip!

  2. The city is rich in history, sometimes jerks can really mess up a trip. Athens is great, enjoyed it when I was there. If you get a chance, go to Temple of Diana.
