In the Plaka neighborhood of Athens near the Acropolis, there are many vendors selling authentic Greek sandals, musical instruments and goods.
Last summer, Europe and the region are experiencing extremely hot temperatures (of course there is no climate change issue, because there is snow in the winter) and currently it is close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
