had a wonderful day with iaonna. we met at the hotel and off we went. at her suggestion we headed to sounio first to avoid the crowds around athens and the acropolis. beautiful drive down the coast and a very informative walk around the ruins. then back to athens for a drive around ending up in the placa for lunch with iaonna. she took us to a beautiful spot under the trees and umbrella's with excellent food. then to the acropolis. Ioanna was very kind to us and we took a nice slow route.
