Goodbye Athens

We spent a couple days in Athens.

The Gotham Gal was advised by quite a few people that two days would be enough.

I think maybe for the standard tourist visit, two days could be enough, but I left this morning thinking that I have to come back. But this time for a deep dive with some locals or people who know the inside track on Athens.

I love cities and love exploring them.

We had four meals in Athens. Two in fancy restaurants with mostly westerners and two in local haunts we found on our own where we were the only tourists. You don’t even need to ask where the best food was. You know.

And so that’s why I want to come back and do a deeper dive at some point. Athens is a cool place that I didn’t get to know well enough this time.
