Whenever Greeks meet in public, a party-like atmosphere ensues! I’ve seen this at hundreds of open-air dining tables… and, also, at Greece’s great markets. The big downtown market in Athens is among my faves: early-morning bustle reminiscent of the old Les Halles in Paris… plus coffee and eating and drinking! The place is ringed by dining establishments, which I cannot resist, even at 9 a.m.! See it all in the video below.
