Due to the fact that our play won third place in the Orestiada Amateur Theatre Festival we were invited to present our play in Athens.
It was a great chance for us to show what we can do! But things were hectic. Still we had great fun!
We started early on Saturday morning under a bit of rain.
But we were happy we were going to Athens.
We arrived at the theatre and at once put up our stage materials and tried the lights.It was the Argo Theatre, owned by Emilia Ypsilande.hotel Mistral at Castella!What a good hotel and what great views it had!
Cheers Beer bar opposite the hotel. It was very good!
The Sub Minister of Education was there and gave us our awards from the Festival. But no one took photos of that!
All of my cousins and one of hubby's too, came to see the performance and then we went out to a great dinner at Rooster's Egg (To avgo toy kokora).
I think that was the highlight of our short stay in Athens.
I loved that house opposite the hotel with the amazing garden on their roof too!
Then our bus took us to the city centre. We walked at Dionysiou Aeropagitou and all the way to Monastiraki passing through lots of archaeology sites as well as handicraft and antique sellers.
Museum of Traditional Greek ceramics but used to be a Turkish mosque. You can find very interesting information about Monastiraki here.
The Parliament looked so beautiful in the setting sun!
Many thanks to the Teachers' Assocation for covering our expenses!
