Athens had a nice feel to it in the early 1970s that was different from today. And the Greek Drachma made things a lot more affordable. Syntagma Square changed a lot from when one could drink a leisurely Amstel beer under an orange tree next to the Parliament Building on a mild winter day. There were lovely small bars in Glyfada across from the airport.

The European Union changed a lot of things in recent years.
