THIS IS THE 3rd TIME TODAY THAT I HAVE MANAGED TO GET ONTO THE INTERNET  -  THIS MORNING WHEN I SENT THE FLORENCE TRAVELBLOG AND SOME PICTURES  -  BUT HAD TO LEAVE BECAUSE WE HAD A TOUR OF ATHENS THAT I HAD TO GET BACK TO THE SHIP FOR.  HOPE THAT IT IS NOT TOOOOO CONFUSING WHEN I AM DOING A TRAVELBLOG ON 4 STOPS AGO ABOUT ROME AND THE START OF OUR CRUISE WHEN WE ARE ACTUALLY IN ATHENS NOW.   BUT THAT IS HOW I LIKE TO DO IT.    DO A TRAVELBLOG ON EACH PLACE THAT WE HAVE BEEN TO, SEPARATELY AND IN SEQUENCE OR ORDER.

WAS SITTING IN MACDONALD (YES IN MACDONALDS) TODAY IN ATHENS HAVING SOME REAL FOOD  -  A COKE AND SOME FRENCH FRIES  -  WHEN THERE WAS A BOMB SCARE AND WE AND EVERYONE ELSE HAD TO EVACUATE MACDONALDS  -  THE POLICE EVACUATED THE PLACE  -  AT FIRST I THOUGHT THAT THEY THOUGHT THAT I HAD DONE SOMETHING WRONG OR WAS A TERRORIST OR SOMETHING  - BUT NO, IT WAS NOT ABOUT ME -  ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT BE A LITTLE LESSON ABOUT EATING IN MACDONALDS IN SOME OF THESE COUNTRIES.
SO I WENT NEXT DOOR  -  PAID 3 EUROS TO LOG ONTO AN INTERNET SITE  -  LOGGED ONTO THE INTERNET AND MY TRAVELBLOG  -  AND THEN THE POLICE CAME INTO THE INTERNET PLACE AND AND KICKED ME AND EVERYONE ELSE OUT OF THAT PLACE BECAUSE OF THE BOMB SCARE.
ANYWAY, IT IS NOW EVENING - I HAVE HALF AN HOUR THAT I CAN SPEND ON MY AND LISE`S TRAVELBLOG BEFORE I HAVE TO GET ONTO THE CRUISE SHIP  -  WE ARE GOING TO THE GREEK ISLAND OF DELOS NEXT;;; AND THEN TO THE GREEK ISLAND OF MYKONOS. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.  THERE IS REALLY NOT THAT MUCH IN ATHENS  -  OTHER THAN THE ACROPOLIS  -  WHICH WAS BUILT ABOUT 450 BC  -  THERE ARE A NUMBER OF BUILDING ON THE ACROPOLIS, THAT WERE BUILT IN THAT ERA AND IT IS QUITE INTERESTING. WE SAW THE BIRTHPLACE OF DEMOCRACY ON THE ACROPOLIS.  - THE REST OF ATHENS  HAS BEEN BOMBED (2nd WORLD WAR) AND DESTROYED SO MANY TIMES THERE ARE VERY FEW BUILDING THAT PREDATE ABOUT 1850 AD.

GOT CARRIED AWAY WITH OUR STAY IN ATHENS,  -  SEE BELOW THE ROMA TRAVELBLOG.

WE BOARDED THE CRUISE SHIP NAUTICA.

ROME (ROMA) - SAW ALL OF THE MAJOR ROME TOURIST ATTRACTIONS - COLUSSEUM, PANTHENON, ROMAN FORUM, VATICAN PLUS A MILLION OTHER THINGS.

CRUISE SHIP NAUTICA
ONE OF THREE IDENTICAL PASSENGER SHIPS OPERATED BY OCEANIA CRUISE SHIP LINES.
PASSENGERS - 650
CREW          - 400

LEFT FROMT HE ITALIAN PORT CITY OF CIVITAVICCIHIA, ABOUT 80 KILOMETERS NORTH OF ROME.

THAT IS ALL FOR NOW.
I DO NOT THINK THAT I CAN CONTINUE TO CALL MY SELF
ITALIAN DAVE
ONCE WE HAVE LEFT ITALIAN WATERS
I WILL HAVE TO THINK UP A NEW NAME.
ITALIAN DAVE AND THE VERY LOVELY LISE.
VIVA LA ITALY
