Tucked in Safe and Sound in Athens

Just a quick update for the benefit of my friends and family who might be concerned upon hearing news of the demonstrations in Athens this weekend. We - my sister and I - are fine.
For now, tucked in and watching this aspect of our view (above)....

Here's a bit of what's been going on for anyone who hasn't seen the news:
My sister had learned about the anniversary, and the concerns the government had about possible violence, so we stayed in both yesterday and today. This turned out to be a good decision, as some of the incidents weren't that far away.

Hoping we find out that things settle down, and we can go out and enjoy some of the historical sites soon, but won't rush it. If the rioting continues another day we'll probably adjust our plans and do a sidetrip to a Greek island sooner than planned.

Anyways, we are being smart and staying safe.
