We finally arrived last night! We are staying at The Hotel Grande Bretagne in Constitution Square in Athens, Greece.

Lobby

Bar
Our bedroom

Had dinner on the roof top of our hotel, what a view!

You can see The Acropolis Hill from here.

Had to have a Greek Salad of course...the Feta Cheese was incredible.
  Three of us had Saffron Risotto with Shrimp and Asparagus....delicious of course.
   View of Parliment from dinner table with a lucky full moon
 They brought us an after dinner drink called Mastiha - it's a Greek Brandy - based liquer. Sweet smell and flavor but very good! It's served nice and cold.
Ok we are down for the night but, we have an early morning mapped out for us so I'll keep you posted :)

This brings back memories of my trip to Greece three years ago. I loved it. How awesome is the feta over there?!? Be sure to check out all the old shops in Plaka, the old district by the acropolis. I found some really interesting necklaces and tokens as gifts.
