Me?

Yes, Athens is crowded and outsize and horrid and smoggy. But.

The Sacred Rock:

The back streets of Plaka. A reminder that once, this used to be a chic 19th century town:

… with a lot of 21st century Greeks jammed in:

The peekaboo of antiquities against the cityspace. Like the Roman Forum:

The view from the Hotel Grande Bretagne rooftop bar:

And the bookstores that still survive. The remaining repositories of Greek lore.
