First food encounter - not impressed. Vegetarian spinach stew with way too much dill and salt. Dry bread. Soggy fries. And a sugaroverload cake thing.

Hadrian's arch, symbolic gate of the city

Acropolis seen from the temple of Zeus garden, the grass is filled with clover with a lovely fragrance

The scent of Athens - orange blossoms, these at the national garden

First glimpse of the tomb of the unknown soldier guarded by the Evzones - more of that later, from dog's point of view

My fondest food memory from Athens - the divine fresh fruit juices

Too much of the cheap touristy trinkets in old township Plaka

I enjoyed Athens very much. I feel badly about the stray dogs, though.
