When I was younger and dreamed of places I’d like to visit, Greece never made the list. This was primarily because I thought I wouldn’t like the food. After all, I don’t like olives. But after three days in Athens, Ben and I have lost all resolve to eat less, although I’m fairly sure we’ve had more veggies in three days than in the rest of our trip combined.
But enough about food. Given the large amounts we’re eating, it’s good that we’re also doing a lot of walking. We started our first full day with a walk up the Filopappou Hill, where we had a great view of the Acropolis and all of Athens. Considering how much the kids whined about leaving the house, they ended up loving the hill. We had to pretty much drag them back down.
After spending all of yesterday outside, we decided to start today with a trip to the National Archeological Museum. It was a good Museum, and massive, but we had some kid drama and we were all exhausted and ready to leave after a couple hours. Most of the interior photos are courtesy of Sophie.
