A rainy movie night in Athens

rain -7 °C

I've learned one thing today. If rain is in the forecast, even if it is sunny, take a raincoat and umbrella. Because you never know when the sky will open up in Athens. It's been a school week as usual here. Not much interesting to report actually. Tomorrow, on the other hand, there is a trip to the Lavrio technology park and then on to Sounion to see the Temple of Poseidon. I think it will be a good day trip. I promise photos!

Tonight the center did a movie night for those who were interested. We watched Pote tin Kyriaki (Never on a Sunday) with Melina Mercouri, one of Greece's most famous actresses from the 50's and 60's. It was a fun film and gave us a bit of a look at an older Athens and Piraeus. If you ever get a chance to rent it and watch it do. I don't think you will be disappointed. We weren't. Unfortunately it started to rain about 20 minutes before the movie ended, hence my warning about umbrellas and raincoats. Needless to say my 10 minute walk home got me a little wet. But I'm home, dry, and ready to hit the sack so I can get up and maybe go to the laiki in the morning before we leave on our day trip. Did I tell you I'm loving these three day weekends?
