And ended up in a small village of Narthaki:
(Actually this is the house Cutie and I are staying at while in Narthaki).
I apologize for the short and rather dull update on my current trip. I have been washing pot shards all day. That was the main reason I went to Greece: to help Cutie with a dig he is participating for. Don’t get me wrong: I loved the opportunity to go to Greece (and experience Athens), but because of the following B.S., I wouldn’t stay there for the whole seven days as I did:
1-Pushy waiters who won’t leave you alone if you happen to walk past their restaurants
2-Lack of public places to sit while walking around Athens.
3-The exchange rate with the Euro.
4-Rude and impatient store owners (most of them. For the record I actually about 3 merchants who were actually polite).
5-Everything closing so early that it is a miracle the city hasn’t fallen apart.
Hence why, if you want to stay in Greece for a long time, your best bet would be a small village where people are nice to you. In Narthaki, the residents are so nice and do not display ANY anti-American B.S. to you. Not to mention it’s peaceful!
That’s my view.
What do you think: are you more of a city or village person?
