We had read about Nicosia – a beautiful walled city with an interesting historic area … and the only divided capital in the world! We were intrigued by these conflicting images, so yesterday we visited to check out both aspects.
On Tuesday December 6th, while we were climbing to the peak of Mount Lycabettus, we didn’t know what was happening on the streets of Athens below us.
We’ve arrived in Athens, and have moved into our apartment. However, our hopes for a smooth and easy trip were dashed by some very dissatisfied workers. Strikes are a daily part of life in Greece, and many of these impact the transportation industry.
