Day 2 – Athens

This morning was an early start at 8’ish - ‘ish is the “Greek Way”, we were forewarned by Gimpy that the Greek are a very relaxed culture and everything is ‘ish. So, when you say 8’ish, it could be 8.00am, it could be 8.30am, it could even be 9.00am! They don’t run anything by time and they shut down all the shops from 2 – 5 (depending on how they feel) for a Siesta.

We reached the site of the Acropolis where we had a local tour guide show us through the ruins explaining everything to us as we went along. It was already about 40 degrees and it was only 9am.

It was then back to the room to freshen up for our traditional Greek Dinner & Show that night. We had front row tables (which we discovered later on were in prime positions to be dragged up on stage!) Click here to see the video footage for the full story!
