For some reason, I wasn’t really excited to explore the tourist sites. I was staying in the hostel right in the old town but all I wanted to do was just chill. It’s weird but I didn’t really care much about the Acropolis, the Parthenon or any of that.

I arrived late in Athens, the street signs I didn’t understand at all. I checked the paper on how to get to my hostel. I needed to get to Syntagma square but when I boarded the bus from the airport to the city, every sign I saw were all written in greek, well of course. Good thing I sat next to a local who is going down the same stop as I was.

I walked around a bit “bangenge” after finishing off my “raki”, my welcome alcoholic drink at the hostel. I didn’t exactly know where I was going, I just wanted to walk around. I saw a lot of ruins, a lot of souvenir shops and a lot of tourists. It was hot, I was hungry and I was just overwhelmed by it all.

As soon as I consumed my first tasty greek meal, experienced the refreshing delight of cappuccino freddo (frappé) and discovered that greek gods do exist, I AM BACK! ;D
