September 9, 2011 Athens, Greece
Arrived in Athens about half an hour ago. Our hotel is in a prime location within walking distance to the Plaka, Acropolis and new museum. I almost wish we had a few more days here given how convenient our location.
Our ship disembarked in Piraeus this morning, which is about a 40 min cab ride to Athens. The ride out of the cruise port was not a very scene experience. First impressions suggest a crowded, dirty place overrun with Grafitti. It’s amazing how much Grafitti there is, and the places it appears.
We’re meeting our friends at the new Acropolis Museum (2yrs old) at 4pm today. In the meantime, we’re takin advantage of our free wifi access. It’s a wakeup call to how much you use it when you don’t have it.
