First week in Greece

By August 12, 2009 Life

So, ive been in greece for a week now, must say its quite fun, not a place to live in but definitely an exotic destination for a good vacation

well, we’ve been taking it easy after that insane week in paris.. one or two things per day this time around…. would probably be hard to go over that in this heat! ^^ normally +27/30 but also up to +35C … having a  bottle of water with you at all times is a must… and you have showered in sweat by the end of the day ^^

anyways, i had rented a small apartment for the month in asimaki fotila 28… was greeted by this…

most common thing ever in athens seems to be the sales of fake brand items in stores, kiosk’s or streets…

ray-ban classes for 5eur ^^

louiviton/cucci/dolche and gabana… you name it

Photobucket

80% of the streets look similar to this:

the “bathroom” station in victoria… coming from paris, the metro is disappointing… few stops, few trains and really, really load and outdated stuff… then again, its better then taking a bus :)

Photobucket

open market in this heat is the worst idea ever… the stench is really bad

Photobucket

a good remedy for sweating

state funded tour bus ^^

Photobucket

it seems to be really popular to get onto this hill to chill next to acropoly… the view is just amazing… both day and nightime

something cheesy every tourist has to see….

must, say, if you look at the ruins and think how it had been back in the day ~4500 years ago then the place is really impressive, then again, theres almost nothing left of that old might… just the location and a few pilars… everything seems to be scattered around the place due to what it seems like a long time renovation… pieces of buildings just laying on the ground in an orderly manner waiting to be put where they need to be (probably have been doing so for the last few decades)

to have some fun ^^

Photobucket

first time wakeboarding… 15 minutes for 35eur… really fun… fell like 3 times… it was suprisingly soft… ive always thought the water is rock hard when youre gliding on it… actually its more like smooth powder snow… anyways, falling is fine… as long as you dont faceplant like i did on the last run… snapped my neck… its acking even now :/
