Harry's Trails Around The World

Harry Travels World

Greece - Athens

First visit: April 1972 (40 days old baby) Subsequently place of residence until 1993 and never missed a year Visited: Throughout Athens and Attica. Very difficult to rank one's home town, even though this has somehow never felt like home. Athens is a mess and Greece is in many ways a banana republic with a rude population, inept officials, and I get the sense that everyone lives with lies and in denial of what is going on around them. Then again, there is terrific food, a great climate, a sea to die for, generally nice music...so it basically ends up being not too bad. Highlight: In Athens? Being at home (see Republic of Dreamland). Rank: 51/217 - Just missing the Top 50.
