The first few days after I arrived in Athens were quite pleasant, but not quite hot enough to qualify as Greek summer (27°C or 80°F during the day and down to 22°C or 72°F at night).
Yesterday, however, I spotted that we finally hit 30°C (86°F) so summer is definitely on its way. Bring it on, is what I say!
The two men you can see on the posterboard below the temperature display are Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis and leader of the opposision George Papandreou. The posters are part of their respective parties' campaigns for the European elections on Sunday.
