All Aboard 2

Athens train terminal is a rather modest station and is too small to even consider comparing it with the large european ones. It is open air and very far from pretty. The only good thing that happened to it is the arrival of thοse beautiful trains (first photo). A large part of rail transportation, though, is made with trains like the second one.

I'd like to ride those trains, and, yes, they are beautiful. Is that graffiti on the blue car?

Yes, it is graffiti. Two days after I took this pic, I met the same train while I was driving. We were rolling side by side, road by railroad. I recognized it by this graffiti.

Ah, but as you well know, Ove,Athens train station gets you to Pireaus (Lord, i've forgoten how to spell it!! Help me!). And Piraeus (nope! Or yep?) is the gateway to the romantic way to go Aegean island-hopping, i.e. by boat......aaaaaah, Hellas for Holidays..What dream!
