I don't really like Athens very much. It's a dirty, disorganized, traffic plagued city that is very stressful. Not the perfect setting for a honeymoon.
But Sara had never been here and her grandmother offered to put us up in the Grande Bretagne for three nights. It's by far the nicest hotel I've ever been in, and a stark contrast with the surrounding city.
The rest of the city could be extremely beautiful, but it's just plagued with graffiti, dirt and run-down buildings. It's clear that they are having problems.
That being said, the Parthenon is the most incredible structure that I've ever seen. It's almost more impressive seen from afar, how it towers over the city.
But outside of our hotel, in the main square of Athens, is where the action is. Yesterday there was a large protest and a 24 hour transit strike that ends at 5am. Our cab for the ferry to the Islands is at 6, so hopefully we can make it there. I feel like the honeymoon officially starts when we get there. Between the wedding fatigue, jet-lag, and craziness of Athens it's been a tiring last few days here.
The first and last shots in this post were of protesters seen through the windows of the hotel restaurant.
