9 AM

Hike 2:30:00 [0] 6.6 km (22:44 / km)

From the hotel, mostly to the E of the Acropolis, taking in several of the other archaeological sites. We had bought a combo pass that covered about 7 of them. They do blend together after a while.

The R leg is not doing well, so returned to the room to dose myself with advil, stretch and roll it.
2 PM

Hike 1:15:00 [0] 3.5 km (21:26 / km)

Back out with the general intention to walk through Thyssion and around the Acropolis. We got distracted by a nice looking Byzantine church, and then by a back entrance int the park that contains the hills of Pnyx and Philopappas. That was really a nice walking place, lots of archaeological excavations, but one needs a fair amount of imagination to understand what was there in antiquity. Rhonda was hungry, so we repaired to our new favorite restaurant.
4 PM

Hike 1:15:00 [0] 4.3 mi (17:27 / mi)

Then back out for a more thorough exploration of the park of Philopappas, some great views, particularly from the eponymous monument, and many, many ancient places including the old road through Koile, the so-called prison of Socrates. And by then getting tired again, so we went back to the hotel. Some of the other bike trip people appear to have arrived, but we won't meet up until tomorrow.
