Night storms sadly never last too long in Athens. Even though this city drowning in sunshine needs a good rainy storm.
And in the storm all I could think of was the only day off in the middle of the week I’ve had in Athens in the past three years. One Friday, early this month. We sat down at Irodeio- Herodes Atticus, the theatre under the Acropolis. It was the first time I’ve ever sat there in the sun, in the middle of a working day. And some street musician was playing “Moon River” at that exact moment. I guess, when you least expect it, this city will offer you some magic.
