National Archaeological Museum; Theran exhibition.
This morning it was pouring. We went to the National Archaeological Museum by train (Victoria) but we had to walk from there. So many new galleries had opened that I wanted to stay there all day, but the kids wouldn't here of it. After a full morning, I took them to the cafe and museum shop, and then we went back to Monastiraki. I took off to the airport to pick up my mom (Joan) and then we came back into town. On the train back to town, I got a call from Alkis, the son of the hotelier in Olympia
, who had one of the students' wallets and he asked to meet at Petralona. I dropped Joan at the Hotel Attalos and then took off for Petralona. I had heard that Alkis was very good looking but I had no idea who he was, so I went around to all the good looking men in the Petralona metro station until I found him. I got the wallet, which was full of money (over 100 Euros) and took the train back to Monastiraki, where I met up with Katrina et al shopping on Ermou. The kids gathered on the fourth floor of the hotel and presented the adults with gifts. They gave me a lovely datebook from the National Archaeological Museum, which I had been admiring in the NAMA gift shop. We went to dinner in Psyrri at a great mezedopoleio (the check was over 300 Euros) and then home to bed. In the morning, the kids were leaving.
