We are elated to have arrived in Athens, eleven months after leaving
Buckler's Hard. Piraeus, the port for Athens, is a dirty bustling
place, but Zea Marina is very smart and we are tied up alongside lots
of beautiful wooden yachts from the 1960's. From here it's a bus and
Metro ride to downtown Athens. Ian is hiring a car to visit some of
the famous sites of Ancient Greece, also visited by Lord Byron in 1809.
We are staying here for two weeks before Sophie and Lanky join us and
we head east towards Turkey.
