Athens - Start of our Adventure
Denise and I arrive a day early and we immediately stop at the Plaka before checking into our hotel for some delicious Greek food - Stuffed Tomatoes, Greek Salad with a big chunk of Feta Cheese, Cheese Pie and of course Greek Beer.
Day 1 in Greece - Jackie and Mitchell arrive in Athens from NYC - Yay! Head to the Hotel.
We headed to the Plaka for lunch - stuffed ourselves. The waiter kept bringing us more food (on the house). He brought gyro meat and yogurt with honey for desert (delicious). Also on the house - he brought us a drink called Raki which is an alcoholic unsweetened Anise drink and very potent. I really think its Rocket fuel - lol - but it was good enough that we ordered 2 more rounds to celebrate our trip.
Our Hotel in Manistraki with a view of the Acropolis from the rooftop.
Day 2 - Exploring Athens - but first we hike up to Lycabettus Hill. We actually we walked to the cable car and took it to the top.
Later that day
Day 3 - The Ruins - Acropolis
Day 3 - Last day in Athens before heading to Mykonos. We decided to visit the Athens Synagogue and the Jewish Museum of Greece. And of course decided to get a brew afterwards.
