As I depart Athens thought I would write some extra notes. The city is not very exciting. Quite dull and dusty. Everyone smokes a lot. I have not found a place where you can't smoke, including those that make food. The people are not very friendly. They look pissed all the time. The men avoid their wives like the plague, and it seems for good reason. Young Greek woman are very beautiful, but they do not age well at all. Probably all the sun and smoke. They also seem very snappy. The ruins were stunning to see, and the Plaka is a fun maze of shops. The day trips are well worth it though. Delphi is gorgeous, and the ruins are most impressive. Worth it to see it all once, but I don't believe I will really want to come back here again, at least not for a while.
