Daily Stuff - Bautiful morning as I left Rome and flew to Athens. Nice flight. sat next to an older guy who was flying out to Greece for a wedding. The guy could not stop talking :) Gave me a primer on Greek history and the difference between classical and modern Greek language. Metro to my hotel neighborhood, the Plaka. Its a very touristy part of town, but nice. Pedestrian traffic only. My hotel is in the shadow of the Parthenon. Can see the top of it lit up from my room.
