GRECIAN ESCAPE : ATHENS 1.0

Back in main land Greece we settled at a central Athens hotel before braving the 35º heat and steep incline to the Acropolis. Though remanence of a once strong economy were sparse it was often the texture left behind that intrigued. As we made the decline back to the hotel the sleepy cobble stone laneways felt deserted and peaceful, four-legged locals basked in the sun and any others hid away from the heat.
