After a sleepless 9 hour flight from New York plus a 3 hour delay to fix a windshield-wiper on our Delta Jet, there is nothing better than to be met by a friendly, familiar face, especially when it is behind the wheel of a new Mercedes. This is Panayotis, one of George the Famous Taxi Driver's fellow drivers. I had been sitting next to the emergency exit and had frozen all night. The paper-thin blankets Delta give you were not much help against the arctic cold seeping in through the cracks and I was happy to arrive in warm sunshine. We had decided the night before that rather then go into Athens we would drive straight to Lavrion and catch the 2pm ferry to Kea.
