WD -2

Lots of info here today so it will be much longer than our normal 2 to 4 line update and shoutout you will see as we walk. Dave had a 2 1/2 layover in Frankfurt and then a 2 1/2 hour flight to Athens.  All signs are in English and Greek at the airport.  No passport check in Athens but it was checked in Frankfurt.  It must be all that is needed for the EU.  There was no one at customs control so no hassle there either. The Metro Station is basically attached to Airport and was a short walk from Baggage Claim.  One of the photos you see today was all along the entrance to the metro from the airport. I thought it was the perfect sign for our arrival! The metro ticket agent spoke English and signs are also in English as well.  Then it was 15 stops to Syntagma Square downtown. The square still had its Christmas tree up as you can see. The hotel was less than a block from the metro station. It was a cold afternoon but Dave still did a little bit of walking to familiarize himself with the area before heading to dinner at a small Italian restaurant called Brigante around the corner that makes fresh pasta. It was excellent! Then it was off to bed after sending best wishes for John’s safe travels and arrival in Athens tomorrow. Dave’s shout out for today is to reemphasize the first of the two charities we are walking for, the Gary Sinise Foundation. Another great example of the wonderful things that Gary supports is when his organization sent 600+ Gold Star families to Walt Disney World to heal together during th holidays. Again if you would like to support his organization the link is on our home page.
