Our first stop in Europe was Athens. We spent a week there and did tons of amazing things: from visiting museums; seeing ancient sites; and boxing clothes for the refugees and people of Greece. Take a look below for a sneak peak into our week in Athens.
Rainy days and cobblestone streets in Plaka where our guest house was.
We visited the Acropolis on one of our spare evenings. The light was amazing.
We also went to the museum, and saw tons of old greek sculptures. This face looks like it is crying because it used to have brass eyelashes that changed the colour of the stone.

When we travelled in the city we would take the Metro.

Another school we visited was the German School of Athens. In the background you can see the old stadiums from the 2004 olympics.
We presented about Earthbound and all the different initiatives we our students are involved with.
The students at the school had done some very interesting art work about refugees.
To help the refugees we went to a old olympic stadium they had converted into a warehouse for donations.
We organized lots of shoes and clothes, which is surprisingly tiring work.
After the warehouse we met three children who were living at the old airport. It now has 3000 Syrians refugees living in it.
