These nice paintings I found on the wall of two houses, make them bigger the inscriptions are quite funny ! As it is in English I suppose it had been painted by some english speaking taggers.
For the first time I was quite unlucky with the choice of our guide. (see post beneath) She rattled her
explanations about the sites like a machine gun and obviously had learned everything by heart. The result was this :
A "just married" American couple from San Fransisco slept during the whole trip and only woke up to climb out of the bus. But before they read in a book what they were going to see ! I always woke them up when the stop was approaching and we had a lot of fun !
When she started to quote her texts in English and French, people stand or walked around, taking a sunbath, or cleaning their fingernails like our old 84 year travel companion behind the guide. We all had decided to complain about her to our respective travel Agencies.
The tip of the top then was when approaching Athenes and the end of our trip, she proposed us some "Greek" music. We all expected some nice and light music to get some funny ambiance, but she spoiled us with some melodramatic opera songs so that we all had the feeling to attend a funeral. Suddenly almost everybody had something in their ears, Ipods or other helpful means, I opted for some tissus which I put in my ears. Finally somebody asked her to stop the music and from this moment on she sank in a offended silence and didn't speak to us anymore.
Nobody got a "good bye" or a "have a nice trip back". She didn't even leave the bus and left us without any explanations in Athenes !
