Seeing Athens

No trip to Athens is complete without a trip downtown for a little taste of thens across the ages. I especially like the old lady in black lighting a cigarette with the boys in the background. The quantity of smoking here is downright medieval. It seems they have only just barely left behind the medievl philosophy of putting their newborns in smoky cubby holes next to the fireplace to protect them from evil spirits. What I am meaning to say is that the first thing that overwhelms you about Greece is how much these people smoke
