Getting Caught Up To Date

November 26, 2010

Made it to Athens.  Long day’s journey.  With a 5:30AM flight and giving enough time for security at Tel Aviv airport, there was no sense paying for a night’s accommodation.  So I gave up a night’s sleep.  It didn’t start well as the morons at Nesher Taxi, the company that operates sheruts, which are shared taxis and much cheaper than taking a single cab, decided that there was no room for me even though I made a reservation two days in advance, in person.  The worst part was that there was no apology, no admission of a screwup.  The idiot just tells me “no room.”  This meant paying about four times as much for a taxi since that was my only option that time of night.  Oh well.  One of the hazards of travel and service outside the USA.

Here’s the journey so far:
