Athens-Singapore

After not good sleep I went to near by hotel for breakfast (kavurma, egg, bread, juice, coffee) that was included in price. From there I walked to Acropolis (46 € ticket for 6 sights), passing Arch of Hadrian. I started from south-east side an went up hill, on my way where Thater of Dionysius, Stoa, Odeon of Herodes, passed Athen Nike templu, through Propylaea to top of the hill with Parthenon, old Athena temple and other monuments.

A descend down and passed Holy Church of Hosios Athanasios with Sunday mass, went to park by park, continued to Agora with Hephaestus temple and Stoa of Attlos. Next was Hadrian’s library and Monastiriki square. On Sytgama square crowd with changing of guard, walked over National garden to Aristotle’s Lyceum. On my way back towards hotel I stopped at Panathinaikou stadium and Zappeion hall.

After shower I checked out late. It was another walk to Syntagma station. There I ate in touristic restaurant, souvlaki with tip 35 €. I went with metro to airport. I was afraid if I have enough time, 1.5 hours. But when I entered Terminal I saw there was a half an hour delay. For check-in I waited quite a while, many chinese pensioners were weighing their bags.

Soon I borded plain to Singapore. I was flying for the first time with Scoot. On Boeing 787 (electronic shades) I just had enough space on aisle seat. On this low cost flight you had to pay everything even electricity to charge your phone. I had good company besides me, German and Argentinian Australian. When taking off there were some have turbolence. Tried to get some sleep, no luck, order 2 glasses of wine 18 SGD, no change. I ate homemade sendwich, cake from Athens apartament, some seeds.
