Day 6: Piraeus (2)

image

Cheryl was in search of Greek rubber stamps, so we headed downtown in the 88-degree (Fahrenheit) heat.

Clearly, we were in the dog days of summer.

It was equally clear that the people of Piraeus were fond of their pets. (These are only two of the pet stores that we saw in the downtown shopping district.)


image

We don't speak Greek, so we didn't know what this shop was selling, but we admired its graphic design. (Cheryl later went into the store on her own and found a nice selection of household goods, toys, and other contemporary items.)


image

The English may have stolen Greece's Elgin Marbles, but Anglophobia doesn't appear to be hurting business in the retail sector.


image

This photo may not look like much, but it's here for a reason: The English-speaking lady in the store was extremely helpful. After finding a suitable rubber stamp for Cheryl, she provided directions to the Archeological and Naval Museums.


image

Cheryl managed to find the Archaeological Museum, but the Naval Museum or Maritime Museum proved trickier (despite directions, a map, and street signs).

Piraeus has a number of museums that we didn't have time to visit, so we'll put them on the "to do" list for our next cruise to Greece.
