Piraeus, Greece and the end of Asia

The biggest excitement of Pireaus was that it marked the fact that we were finally leaving the Asia season for a small stop in the Mediterranean before our long Scandinavian summer. Were we ever weary! We were resolute not to spent a penny in Europe as it was so expensive. Even though we had no qualms spending on all that seafood in Asia.

I didn’t go into Athens, see the Acropolis, or anything. Me and Sherwin had some time for Greek food at my favourite Pizza place (we must have forgotten the camera!) and later I just took a short walk from the ship as I was busy working most of the day.

I did see an interesting display case belonging to a seafood restaurant!

And I believe I saw a big Greek wedding.

This bonsai in a nearby store was lovely. It looked a little like a Baobab tree.
