Our ship has arrived at Piraeus port in Athens. Shirley booked a tour so that she would see everything.  I left the ship and was going to take a bus to Terminal A where I could get the Metro.  However, there was a booth selling tickets for public transportation. For €4 I got 24 hours on public transportation and the bus picked us up at Terminal B and went to the Acropolis which is at least a 10 mile ride. It was a great ride through the city.  I walked up to the Acropolis and then walked to the Plaka in search of wifi again.  I ran into Brett and his brother Scott who were also on the ship.  Brett just graduated from dental school and this was a celebratory cruise.We stopped at a restaurant and enjoyed food, drink and wifi.  I went back to catch the X80 bus back to the port.  I’m now sitting in the terminal because obviously it has wifi and I may not be able to connect again.  Tomorrow is a day at sea and then on to Naples. It has been difficult to blog with the lack of wifi.
