In 1980 our plane spiraled in wide curves out of the blue sky to the capital of Greece and finally landed on the short runway of Athens airport. We only stayed a few days in the city because our primary destination was the island of Crete and we had already booked a ship passage from Piraeus.

But there was enough time for some photographs with our Voigtländer camera at the time. These are now scanned and maybe one or the other (or is it now different?) Has fun traveling back around 40 years in time and looking at the cars, historical places and street canyons of that time.

We found the straight guard in front of the parliament building particularly interesting - our colleagues from the English Honor Guard can cut a few more slices there.
