Athens update

As some of you might have seen on the news, there is a few things going on in Athens these days ;)

As the Danish institute is quite close to the parliament we could here the demonstrations and such since they are quite focused on one square they did not really affect us.

What did affect us though was the fact that, after we had lunch on the roof terrace of the Acropolis Museum (which is quite reasonably priced), we wanted to go up and see the Acropolis itself and could not because of the strike :(

So we only had a little walk and went back to work …

In the evening we spent some time on the roof garden of the institute watching the lunar eclipse andhad a reasonably nice dinner in a small restaurant in town with loads of tzatziki :)

Today we plan to spent our lunch break in the National Archaeological Museum to have a look at the Antikythera mechanism amongst others …
