A certain godess abandoned her ancient city in order to move to England, that's when all Dubious wisdom leaft the lands of Hellas and rooted itself to England. After many reincarnations and lots of milleniums, the time came for her to return to the sacred grounds, being greatly helped by a wierd little being that firmly believe she belonged there.

[]

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have the ultimate happyness to inform you that I will soonishly be meeting with my most beloved witch, going around by the code name Athene.
Even though I have leaft the forums for quite some time, I decided to take the best of it and drag it over to my land. That is the kind of selfish being that I am.

So at the 24th of April I will be welcoming the Godess and her wierd purple attendant -aka donkey- to my house in Athens.
All those green with envy are welcomed to post here. []

[] [] Oh, this is what you meant by "an innocent little thread", is it?
[]

Well, donkey and I are extremely over-excited to be going, and can't quite believe that we've got to wait NEARLY A WHOLE MONTH ( [] ). Still it gives us time to get a new bikini (for me) and a new hat (for donkey).

I have printed out a list of useful Greek phrases in anticipation: I have already learnt how to say "I like Greece", which I think should serve me well in any situation!

Plus, I have been brushing up on The Cockerel Song. [] []

I'm soooooooo jealous! Ditto Snowman and WT said; never been to Athens but would love to. Can't wait to see the pics.

Can't wait to see how good a likeness of you those statues are Athene?

Oh, and watch what she puts in your tea (or not) []

Oh man, jealous isn't even the word!!! Athene, take good care of my Wifey for me, and Wifey, you owe me a big, big PM. []

Take loads of photos, I want everything captured! Every moment, every statue, every landscape, every bathroom visit... j/k!!! []

I was at a bar last week and saw some typical words of the prophets on the men's room wall, took a picture and decided (then) I was going to start a Pony thread about the wisdom found in bathroom graffiti.

Then I woke up the next morning, sober, and changed my mind.

Hmmmm.... the only Greek I remember from my time in Athens is(and forgive my spelling):

Efkarastopoli... thank you.
Parakalo... you're welcome/please.
Ohi(with a nod)... no.
Neh(with a head shake)... yes.

I remember various hand gestures as well. []

Some tips: Taxis don't stop just because you hail one. They slow down and you have to yell out your destination, then they decide if they feel like going in that direction. Showing a little skin seems to help in their decision making. [] Don't be surprised if the your taxi stops and picks up another passenger going in the same direction... this happens often. Also, don't expect this to make your trip cheaper.

Best neighborhood in Athens: Kolonaki! [] Cute shops and cafés... beautiful Apollos and Aphrodites wandering about. []

First off, let me underline that I would never give Athene anything illegal, for the same reason the Druid doesn't give anything to Obelix []

quote:
I hope you two have a blast!

With Athene? Are you kidding? That boring individual? Nahhh....

quote:
Take pictures
Do you want me to photograph something in particular dear? Cause now is the time to ask []

quote:
PS what do Greek donkeys like to eat?
English lions []
Not funny huh? []

Grass, like the rest of us nature loving greeks, I guess []

quote:
Still it gives us time to get a new bikini (for me) and a new hat (for donkey).

Ermm... not yet bikini season dear. Even though most men would appreciate it if you casualy wore it and roamed the streets with me, I'm sure.
And donkey will need a hat, and sunglasses. So will you, my dear Northern friend. The Sun kisses dangerously this time of year.
quote:
Then I woke up the next morning, sober, and changed my mind.
That's the awful about being sober, all unexpected creativity goes out the window for no reason at all, other than being drunk at the time []

And by the way, Thingy has it right, but no way I am taking you to Kolonaki where the trendy people live and breed. You'll have to deal with not seeing that part of Athens. On the other hand you will be living at Kipseli -the most densely populated area of Europe- and hanging out in Exarhia among anarchists and generaly suspitious creatures. []

I lived in Exarhia. [] Very suspicious creatures indeed... especially around Omonoia. [] I bet you spend quite a bit of time there, eh goddess? []
