The Art of the Layover

En route to Santorini, I had a five-hour layover in Athens.  Used to be, a five-hour layover would aggravate me.  Now it's just bonus time.  45 minutes into center city.  2 hours to walk to the Acropolis and back.  45 minutes back to the airport.  No problem. 

I wasn't exactly sure where I was, ending up in a cute little white-washed neighborhood, but I got the idea several other people had ended up in the same situation.

Emerging onto the hill of the Acropolis, this view of the city greeted me.

The arena
And finally, the Acropolis.  So much more rewarding than trying to sleep on lumpy airport seats.
