Athens & Delphi
 

I didn't like Athens being busy, ramshackle, dirty and polluted with all the same chain stores you find everywhere in the world – hardly anything Greek about it.

The same people spend money in cafes and on coffee to-go because appearance is everything. And there seems to be no joy of life - I don’t recall any smiles during my time here...
