Athens, Greece

Back to the big city, Liz and I flew from Mykonos to Athens to see some of the archeological sites, city life and eat all the foods.The big surprise is the graffiti. It is everywhere, on every wall. A lot of it is tagging, but many are amazing pieces of art! Because the graffiti is unavoidable, shop owners have started hiring artists to cover their own buildings with more professional work.

Liz and I took two bike tours with a smaller company in Athens (Roll In Athens). So small, it was just us and the guide! The first tour was city sites and the second tour took us out to the beach.

My souvenir to myself is custom handmade leather sandals from Melissinos The Poet Sandal Maker shop. He measured the sandals to my feet and did the finishing right there in the shop while I waited with Hoy Hoy, the shop dog.
