Greece-Turkey Day 1: Dulles to Piraeus

After flying overnight from Dulles to Frankfurt, and this morning from Frankfurt to Athens, I arrived at the Hotel Triton in Piraeus round 4 p.m.  Dr. Craven’s group is traveling from from Boston, so I’ve got some free time before they arrive.  I check out the view of the city from my room.
