honeymoon day 16, our big fat greek honeymoon starts here

Hello again!!!

Onboard Aegean Air to Athens!

look at all that excess luggage I'm lugging out of Italy. My bank account has since been in poor health.

ALL that baggage, not even including bushyhead's (who's a much bigger shopper than I was) yet, we heaved all of them onto the bus that took us into Athens city and stood awkwardy with bags on our shoulders, between our legs, on our tummies, most way of the entire journey. ekkk!

the bus at our destination - Syntagma Square

checking in at Magna Grecia Boutique Hotel

the overwhelmingly blue corridor outside our room

Many hotels will offer view of the Acropolis because of its strategic location where it was meant to be seen by the everyone in the city. And because of that, I specifically wanted one that offer me a view like this. It'd be so silly to check in and find one of those hotels which doesn't have a view of the Acropolis at all!

i will agree that this room, however, is too pink and girly.

dirty laundry. - airing the clothes that simply won't dry in Rome on our balcony.

seizing the day, and enjoying the longer daylight hours that Greece was offering us as opposed to what we experienced previously

stacks of giant donuts at ermou street

the Greeks at their favourite game of Backgammon

ouzo - I told myself that I had to try this while I'm there

it's funny sometimes that when i'm overseas, everything looks good and a novelty to me. I don't eat coconut products, but cut coconut in a mini fountain? "looks yum!" sweetened coconut snack with desiccated coconut? "Must try!" what's wrong with me?

ending the day with friends by the fire

and i got my bushyhead with me. it was a great day!

we dropped by the famous sandal-maker/post/artist in Athens.We chit-chatted and he recommended us to this little tavern for a good homemade greek meal.

he said, look out for the drunkard with big red nose.

And we got to see why the locals liked it here. It’s like having a meal at home with your friends, the host tell you what they have in their kitchen that day and you sit down for your meal with a jug of cheap wine and spend the evening listening to gossips and maybe a game of Backgammon.

the other drinking holes in the area

we ended the day with a glass of sweet sangria and people-watched at an outfoor cafe in Ermou street
