Well, I was indeed fortunate enough to be there when the Eurocup 2004 was on. I was staying in my friends lovely house and witness the goal that brought the underdogs to the finals. There was a massive celebration and it felt like it was just yesterday. Time does fly, doesn't it.
I have always avoided such events because of the crowds but as I was being a tourist, I did not hesitate to participate. We drove into the city center of Athens where we parked the car two kilometres away before making the rest of the journey by foot. The good thing about Greeks are they know how to celebrate and when I mean celebrate, no one can ever be as loud as the Greeks. Drums were brought out and massive crowds sang and dance together.
It was indeed an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget. I certainly would not hesistate to return there again.
