Athens

A few days in Athens with lots of contradictions, the city shows some decay and many closed buildings with lots of graffitis every where, a big crises still bitting hard the people of Greece, its really strange that there are lots of phone cabins every where, all in decay and again full of graffitis but surprisingly in working conditions and all this all in the era of mobile phones.
The city is very low and without big or interesting modern landmarks, of course the Acropolis is always there with the Goddess watching at you.
Evenings are quite dark as the city lights are not very generous, I guess it’s due to some budgetary adjustments. Not a pretty city but with really nice people that seems a little tired of too much past full of old ruins, walking around there are also some greens with little drops of oranges making a comfortable mediterranean sense of life shown into a pleasant human scale, I did really enjoy the short time there.
