Downtown

Athens is a great town. Speaking as a visitor of course. There are loads of bars and restaurants for starters. Also there's lots of history here if you can drag yourself out of a bar long enough to find it and a river walk that takes you around where the old mills used to be. I also found an old timber railway bridge for which there were no signs. We just stumbled on it by chance. I thought it was great, they should make more of it.
Oh and of course there's the College, which is bigger than my town. In fact bigger than Athens too.

    This is the so-called "Murmur trestle," as there is a picture of it on the back cover of REM's album, Murmur. It was nearly destroyed a few years ago but the city took action to save it.
