Here are some observations of my recent visit to Attika.
|The Greek press seem to be obsessed with images of a certain Corporal Schicklegruber and German Chancellor Mrs Merkel cuts a trim figure dressed in a familar uniform and |
appears to be very popular.
|On a bus riding towards Cape Sounion - 35 miles for €1.60! Motorcycles compete with the tram by riding in the bus lane.|
|My front porch appears to have become a motorcycle parking area!|
|A metro train - anywhere in Athens within 90 minutes for €1.40|
|Octopus grilled and then chewed|
|Mussels and feta|
|Pastries from Asia Minor recipes.|
|At this time of year free oranges adorn many streets in Athens|
|A visit to Mount Pendeli to pick up marble...|
|...and watch the traditional beginning of Lent kite flying.|
|No mention here of corrupt and inefficient government and Goldman Sachs|
