Dinner was peppers and tomatoes stuffed with rice (and meat for the meat-eaters). They seem to put feta on top of everything!
The muses at the Acropolis museum!
Weird pedicure place where you put your feet in a tub of flesh eating fish. I didn't do it but my roommates did! 🐟
Lunch and shopping at the agora. P.S. REAL Greek salads have NO lettuce. Who knew?! They eat seasonally so... Tomato salads in the summer and lettuce salads in the winter.
Lots of stray cats and dogs!
STUNNING views from the Parthenon on the Acropolis!
The native plants are so different! We saw carob trees, blackberry bushes, and of course olive trees!
First modern Olympic stadium

Collecting pins at all three countries to start a travel pin collection!
Dinner tonight was a veggie stew, salad (full of olives of course), and a persimmon yellow cake. Great rendition of an otherwise non-vegetarian banquet style meal. These people are very accommodating!
On the metro today... And somebody tried to pick pocket me!! It was so scary!! I don't think they took anything but I definitely saw his hand wiggling into my purse. I called him out and he got off the metro at the next stop. Thank goodness I caught him in time!! 😳🙁
