More Athens

After the workshop ended on Friday I had some more time to explore the city and its sights.
I walked more than 15 kilometers on Friday and only slightly less on Saturday … man my feet hurt now!
In general there are many nice things to see in Athens, though the city itself is not too beautiful. A lot of houses are semi-modern and in non-optimal conditions, though on average the inner city look slightly better (as usual).
I had some very nice dishes in various non-central places in town, typically as the only-non greek in the place.
And of course I saw almost all the ancient temples, markets and places along with the according museums …
If you ever considered to visit Athens and you are still a student, you should do it as long as you still have your student ID.
You and up paying half or nothing (if from within the EU). That aside, the prices for adults are still within reason!
