flight overseas last night, and we are checked
in to our Athens hotel, the Metropolitan. Here
are some photos of the hotel. There is a nice
pool area on top with views of the city all around.
That is the Acropolis and the Parthenon in the
distance as seen from the roof top.
It is very hot here, in the 90's. (feels like home!)
They say they are experiencing a heat wave, but
it should be better as we travel north during the
Athens has 5 million people, not counting the
tourists that invade in the summer. It is a very
modern, bustling city so far, but I am anxious to
see the older parts. will try to go today...
Keep you posted!
