The Cost Of Living In Athens, Greece

I spent the entire month of August based in the once ancient (now modern) city of Athens, Greece. Most of my days were spent in the city – both working and exploring. However, I did manage to go on a cruise to Turkey and 4 Greek islands and had a friend from California come out and visit me. I’ll be sharing pictures and video from Athens in a series of future posts, but in the meantime, here are my living expenses from the month of August, 2009.
