 In Athens, Amy (2017)

Well, my journey with Athens is coming to end soon. This summer 2017 has been so memorable to me.

Let me introduce myself a little bit. I am Amy, a small 20-year-old girl from Vietnam, also a small but proud country in South East Asia. Having a chance to study abroad in Finland, I have stayed in Fin for more than 2 years now. This summer, when I heard about an opportunity to work as volunteer and experience Greece, initially I had some consideration. Well why should I choose to go to Greece, instead of staying and enjoying summer in Finland? (Actually I have never experienced summer in Finland though, that is strange, right?) Or going back to Vietnam to visit my family? Well, I guess this time they have to wait for me a little bit, since I have decided to go and see how Greece, especially Athens look like.

I can say so far that I have never regretted this decision. At first when reaching the airport, I was shock, since I still have my jacket from Finland, it still snowed there, and the heat in Athens hit me so hard. After that, I was amazed. I kept looking outside the bus to see all the mountains. My first feeling. It was amazing. Not many cities have mountains and hills in the central, but Athens has. He is lucky. Things keep on amazing me every day in this 6 weeks experience. They say when you know when you read, but you truly understand when you go. That is exactly my case. I have found a lot of similarities between Athens and my home city, Hanoi. All of the continuous houses and building, some with messy clothing, some with very unique style, all of these makes Athens different. Even though the time I came, there were strikes, 2 to 3 times/ week, which caused some traffic problems, Greek people treats me so nicely and special. I remembered some people continuously ask if we are lost, or they told me about the strike when they thought I was waiting for the trolley (I am not honestly). It is just not stop there. I met Xenia, the most hospitable, kind and beautiful Greek woman. I had chance to work with her in her NGO, which cares for poor people in small village near Athens, and cares by activities and actions, not just words. I hope that my small work here can contribute to the big vision that “I care” NGO is working towards to. Xenia, how can I describe here with just few words here? You need to meet her in person, listen when she shared with you about Greece, about her thoughts, you will agree with me that I am right. Thanks to her, I deeply had chance to understand more about Greek culture and customs. Thanks to her, I met “new friends”, visited Greek houses and family, and experienced the warmest dinner I have ever had with friends so far in my life. It is not by chance, people come in your life for reason. That is true. I learned so much more than just wandering in street, or seeing the momentums.

Athens, in my eyes, is a city full of rush but hospitable people, with a huge wide range of sweets, breads and pastry. I am not a coffee person, so I cannot describe about it. I fall in love with lukumades (a popular sweet dessert that you need to try when coming here), different types of ice-cream here, they are so better and more various than in Finland, of course, souvlaki, a cheap but really tasty street food. My most favourable dish is fried vegetable with fish egg salat. I was amazed when knowing that there are many different types of vegetables and sauces in Athens. Not to mention all of the popular places that people from all the world need to come to Athens to see and enjoy: the Acropolis, Hadrian’s library, Olympieon, Kerameikos, National Stadium, the Parthenon,… A small tip that if you are student, you should bring your student card, they only accept card, not certificate paper, to get free entrance (which saves a lot of money) to these popular sites. Having read comics about Athens’s ancient with Zeus’s stories and other Gods since I was a small child, coming to Athens, to the historical part, I am truly grateful to see pieces of the past in my real eyes. Athens has big wide ranges of popular brands stores all the around the world near Syntagma city center, Monastiraki flea market right 1 km away, and most of all the historical sites you can reach by foot. The transportation can help you to get to anywhere, and google maps is your friend on the go here, believe me. You can go to the mountains, or go to the beaches right from Athens with buses. It takes around 1 hour to 2 hours, hence I believe it is very convenient also. Besides, going to islands I believe it will be on your list, and you can reach there also from Piraeus port, which is around 25’ by metro from Athens center.

A piece of my writing hopefully you can imagine a little bit about Athens. From Finland, I counted­ every day to come here. And now I need to count again how many days I have left to experience Athens as much as I can. Life is always a journey, I believe. Take every opportunity that you see. They are for you, be open and get the best from it, since you will never know what you will get in the end. This is how I got amazed everyday while staying here, in Athens.

For you, Athens, see you again, soon. Thank you, for every counted experience.
