Day 18: Reintroduction to Athens (a good long day)

We are officially back in Athens, back in action, without any clue how the day would go. Some interesting Athenians agreed to meet up: a pianist who was introduced to us through Vasilios of Peristera, a political analyst that Fra was really excited to meet, and a journalist from Cafe Babel Greece who was just as eager to share her perspective and to help walk us through the Athens experience.

Arranging to meet three people from different backgrounds in one day and managing to spend a long enough time for good conversation proved to be a real challenge in a city so wide and dense as Athens. Well, we are happy to report that we did manage, and it was great - and beautiful as most unexpected things are. We even squeezed in a visit to the Acropolis Museum, huge hovering see-through structure that gave off a feeling of traveling through time.
