Athens By Night

This is my first time visiting Athens so I take the opportunity to snap pictures even though it is late at night. I got in with a cab driver, asked him where I can take some nice night pictures, and he asked how long do I need, and I said as long as he needs. He took me for a very nice tour around the city, he was a very nice man, he asked where I was from and said that he knew a lot of Saudis and said that Kuwaitis used to come a lot to Greece before the Gulf War but not so much anymore. What surprised me is the friendliness and kindness of the Greeks, a majority of them speak English and those who don’t were very helpful to find someone that does.

It was a nice feeling walking around the city, and driving around at night seeing all these interesting spots. We went to Glefadah which is a nice beach area to snap pictures of the port area at night, then he took me to the parliment building, when I got back to my hotel I can see the acropolis and snapped pictures of it at night. It was 1 am on a Monday night, and I could still here the hotel bar two floors above going, I learned that Greeks do enjoy their nights out, every night.

  2. if ur still there, and still want to see more let me know and i’ll hock u up, got a lot of Greek friends.

    a couple of places you shouldn’t miss:

    Morning Coffee or a night cap at the ports of Piraeus, where the yachts are not the commercial ships…there are around 10 small ports with coffee shops, restaurants and bars around them

    Pinelopi & Mnistires, a rebetiko place but call before u go just to make sure they have live music.

    IΘAKH restaurant or Ithaki in english at 28 Apollonos street.

    and on ur way to the airport to a Ta BAAXIA restaurant http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/3984097785/in/set-72157622522995958/

  3. Nice shots… Love the reflections.

    I’ve only been ‘through’ Athens to attend a wedding on an island called Syros. One day in shaa Allah.
