The week before the 22nd of January it was snowy, cold and dark in Bucharest. Remembering the colg long winter of last year, Andries bought to tickets for a weekend break to the Sun. And we were lucky......:-) Arriving on Friday evening, the weather for the weekend was great. We booked a hotel with Acropolis view and after some insistence we also got a room with the view on the Parthenon. Saturday we spend scrolling around in the old part of Athens. Very nice and relaxed, especially because we were lucky with the weather and in the low season without the overkill on tourists. After the old town we visited the Acropolis, Ancient Agoda, National gardens etc etc in the afternoon and on Sunday. Especially the new Acropolis museum was impressive (it took apparently 40 years to finish). On Sunday evening we flew back with enough sunshine on our faces to cope with the winter back in Romania!
