Hubby was taking part in the Strefi Hill Shadow Puppet Festival and my mum was visiting her brother who is sick.
For me it was a chance to visit lots of relatives and do some sightseeing too.
We arrived on Monday 2nd in the afternoon and settled at my aunt's. Then we went to walk in the city centre.
Athens was beautiful under the sunny sky although there were things we did not like. One that it was too hot again! It seems every time we go to Athens it is too hot.
Lycabettus Hill. We reached its foot.
The University of Athens.
I envy my aunt's taste in interior decoration.
On the third day, Wednesday 4th, we went to my cousin at Melissia.We had the chance to collect thyme on Pendeli Mountain.
We had little chance to go shopping while in Athens but on Thursday after being treated with coffee at Zonar's by my other cousin and his wife we went to the Benaki Museum shop and what we bought was once again a shadow puppet figure!This beautiful car is a design by Sotiris Spatharis.Benaki Museum shop is gorgeous although rather expensive!
Strefi Hill to attend the performances.Two more on Thursday evening too!
