Lycabettas Hill as the sun sets

Wednesday three weeks ago in Athens following a visit to Taresso climb Lycabettas Hill as the sun was setting.

At the top of the steps, police with semi-automatic weapons and many police milling around. I asked the guy with semi-automatic weapon. Very important person passing through.

Up through the wood of pine trees and aloe vera, then through aloe vera and prickly pear cacti. When I got to the top the sun had set. I was surprised at the number of people.

Walked back down in the dark. Dangerous as do not see steps, and if do not focus miss sharp turns in the path and walk over a precipice. Even looking over the city lose dark adjustment of eyes.

Three bus loads of riot police.

Then got lost. I did not have a clue where I was, completely disorientated.

Eventually I encounter Ohh Boy, and ask may I use their wifi.

I find I am nowhere near where I thought I was.
