Jim and Elsie’s 1978 Tour – Day 3

Monday, 3 April 1978

Cool to cold – heavy, overcast

George Stergiopoulos (Sunny Way Tours) arranged the vouchers for our trips. Had checked the hotel to find out where we were as he had a different arrival date. Very obliging.

Afternoon tour of city. Bus picked us up at the hotel and we toured around to other hotels making pickups. The driver was expert in the heavy traffic and narrow streets. Most of the streets are one way.

Jim (centre) – Temple of Poseidon

Elsie – Temple of Poseidon

Afternoon tour to Cape Sounion. Drive along the coast road past summer houses. Athen’s temperature 35o to 48o in summer so some people have a house by the sea. All styles of houses the same. No painting, no gardens, dirty looking.

Visited the Temple of Poseidon. Windy and cold.
