If your computer can handle it (meaning it doesn't stutter once it's loaded) click the "HD" button... incredible.
This could be addictive. Like... if it weren't for all that was waiting for me at home? I would find a way to get paid to travel the world and share it with people. 'Cause it's like I'm living a different life every week. For example, in my decade in LA I have never once visited a dance club of any kind. Not that I can't dance, it's just that my best shot at picking up a woman is talking to her, not dancing. Oh and I've been married 90% of the time I've been in LA.
So me getting into Athens at 1am early this morning, then proceeding to go to a dance club (with my couchsurfing.com host) and then dancing for 2 hours (thank GOD I have some "G" in me) was culture shock to say the least. The funny part is? A black dude came up to me and said he liked my moves... and THAT made me happier than hooking up EVER would have. LOL. Random hookups bore me - but a brotha thinks I can dance? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit. Straight, PIMPIN.
Then today while lookin' for a silver ring in a flea market in Athens this little greek girl running a store says in english "hello" to which I respond:  "is it that obvious?". I mean come on - if I can't fit in in Greece, where the hell can I? Is it like some enlgish-speaking stench we tourists have? I think it's 'cause the locals don't shop at these places. Either way - we talked for a bit and she offered to show me around Athens when she closed. Enter Cameron's confused look for my reaction:
Will it always shock me? Like I had to fight the feeling to look behind me 'cause clearly that's the guy she was talking to. Will I ever have more "Live Adam" swagger in me? I so wish I did. I think that's why the dynamic of Cameron and Adam works. Cam is jealous as hell of Adam, even if he's far smarter and more interesting... and vice versa. So every line those two speak to each other are like two sides of my brain battling. I feel like Cameron no matter how I may look.
Anyway - she took me up to the Acropolis (I wonder if that's a euphamism in Greece - LOL - I assure you, this was not) and the view... Wow. 
Please click the picture for the super-massive version, shit took me quite awhile to put together...
I have no words. Just breathtaking. I will return here for my running video before I leave. What a whirlwind 24 hours in Athens. Tomorrow I'm going to a greek island, and for the first time in a looooooooooong time, I'm going to have some time alone. I can't wait.
