There is a controversial issue as well, they seems to care about saving the Earth by using bicycles everywhere, but on the other hand, the lights in their houses are permanently on.

Plenty activities for the children, the best science museum (Nemo) I have ever seen. The building was like a boat and inside a lot of fun. Learn about science by doing. The new National Library is an exquisite library model to see and the traditional Museum of Van Gough and Rebrandt... for some more culture.
It was a nice break in this relaxed humane environment after the formal structured society in England.Whatever concerns Athens is very exotic to be compared with!

Greeks everywhere..we are starting to be travellers!
