[Greece 2004] Athens Impression (10)

The whole Athens was “frying” due to the coming Olympic Games in August.

Walking on the street, one could find these kinds of souvenir shops almost everywhere. It made me feel how much emphasis and energy they put into the whole preparation for the homecoming of the Olympic Game after 108 years. Though it’s coming in less than two months and many constructions are yet to complete. Like what Mirto said, with the Greek nature it’d eventually be completed at the last moment. They do hope that the Olympic Game will bring lots of people in for the recovery of the tourism industry.
