Athens Day 1

So here we are in Athens, and so far, what a thoroughly enjoyable time. The students have been great company, the places we have been have been great (Terminal 5 at Heathrow is one of the better places to fly from) and the journeys have been easy.

After getting into Athens in the late afternoon, we headed south to Kato Sounio (Sounion) and had a dinner of kebab and chips, with Greek salad and halva (not all together) in this place: the Ilias taverna. It had a view of the temple of Poseidon. All pictured below…




And then to the hotel, the Ilissos in Athens, and wow, a very nice hotel indeed! And from the roof garden, what a view! This picture may not come out too well but is great in real life (it’s the Parthenon, in case anyone doesn’t recognise it).
