Day 1, Athens, on Film

Finally got around to scanning and resizing all my photos that I took with Nikon FM film camera! Let’s continue with my first day in Athens, analog-style.

Mama's Salad, Goody's, Athens
Lunch at Goody’s, a Greek fast-food joint. The food here looks much lighter, and more fresh than any McDonald’s we have here in the states. My sister got this salad (“Mama’s Salad, with whole-wheat rusks, tomatoes, feta, olives, wich a vinaigrette) and I went to a shop next door and bought a spanakopita (a cheese-less version of the traditional spinach pie). Felt it was a little over-baked, but still edible.

En Route to the Acropolis

The Acropolis site. Awe-inspiring.

That day was so hot, after hiking up the site to the Acropolis and back down, we had to rest a bit in the shade and rehydrate. Thankfully, in Greece, water is easily purchased everywhere and cheap.

Taramosalata (Fish Roe Dip), Dia Tauta, Athens

Chilling at the hotel.

    It’s so cool that you brought your film camera as well! I only recently started using film (for photography class at school) but my mom found some expired film that I might be able to practice with. 😉 Athens looks like so much fun! And I just love your shoes.

    Yeah, when I was packing I couldn’t decide between bringing my digital SLR and my film camera; in the end I ended up bringing a new digital point and shoot and the film camera. I’m so glad I did 🙂 Those shoes I actually bought in Taiwan for like $9 US! Super cheap and really comfortable too.
