Lake Vouliagmeni

Recently, we had to take the kids to the US Embassy in Athens in order to renew their passports. This was quite a hassle, so we made the best of it by combining it with a trip to Lake Vouliagmeni, which the kids thoroughly enjoyed.

The first thing you notice is the small fish tickling your feet. Actually, though, they are feasting on your dead skin, and people come from far and wide for this spa treatment. The kids actually said they didn't feel anything, so I guess they don't have enough dead skin.

The green dot in the middle of the photo above is one of the kids floaties. Paul grabbed one and headed out full-steam for the middle of the lake.

Here's Phoebe at one of the stairs, where the hungry little piranha fish tend to gather.

As you can see, it's a gorgeous location in a suburb of Athens, far from the chaos of the city.

Here are Pelagia and Benny watching the fish tickle their feet.
