Journal Entry:
Got up early, did the final packing and left The Andreas for good. Caught a cab with Bill and Carol to their hotel in Athens proper. We went to The Temple of the Olympian Zeus, the parlement building (caught the changing of the gard at the tomb of the unknown warrior), and found a tourist office. Had a great lunch at Wendy's, then I parted company with Bill and Carol and I treked to the hostel.

The hostel is very nice and very reasonable (1,500 GDR ~= US$5.50 / night). Went out with some peoplw from the hostel and got hit on by our waiter (I turned him down).
