The highest peak in Athens, Mount Lycabettus taunts a frequent visitor from every famous monument, landmark and neighborhood in Athens. A glimpse into the private everyday world of the metropolis awakens reflections behind the assailment of headlines regarding Greece’s current social and economic situation.

Mount Lycabettus stands as a sacred sentinel above Athens, while people struggle to live in the city below. A tale told as a series of snapshots about contemporary life in the original capital of Western democracy, by Sonja Holverson.

Story
Tagline
Editor in Chief of TransitionsAbroad.com (a trailblazing Travel, Study, Volunteer, Work, Living abroad online publication founded as a magazine in 1977 by my late father, Clay Hubbs, PhD).
Introduction
Extensive travel/living/study abroad experience, but prefer to take travel slow and savor life rather than counting the many countries I have lived in or visited. Lover of life, literature, music, most forms of art, great food, comedy, with aesthetics as a religion. For more, if interested, see my bio.

Follow and see the www.TransitionsAbroad.com Google+ page for more of my posts related to  travel if interested.
Bragging rights
Proud to be the son of the two best read, well-traveled. coolest, and most empathetic of parents I have ever met. Professors only in name, lovers of great literature and conversation. I have met so many Nobel prize winners and other famous writers/artists through them in my youth I lost count. Traveled more around the world at a young age than most have or will in their entire lives thanks to parents and my own travel bug. See bio at: http://www.transitionsabroad.com/information/media/gregory_hubbs_bio.shtml.
