Before the run
Hashers gather in the Cavallari Taverna car park in Varibobi
Four visitors from the Milan hash unexpectedly arrive including old friend Vaseline
The hare Rear Entry starts to give the low-down on the run and walk
Short, downhill, easy ...yea yea
A question for the hare from - can you guess who?
Now hashers, are you ready for your group photo?
Ahhh! Don't they look like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths? Perfect angels? (not)
The hare on his check
Vaseline and Rim Job checking behind
At the beer stop the runners wait for the walkers (hey! leave some beer for them)
The walkers arrive
Time for another group photo
And one more before the runners take off
One of harriettes from Milan posing in colourful tights
The runners set off fueled by beer
Captain Sumo photographs Vaseline charging on
A lone deciduous tree shows it's winter splendour
On On to the On In
There is some lovely woodland in this area
Strong winter sunshine - great conditions for a walk
A disused cistern or Sterna indicating past attempts at agriculture
Breaking out of the woods into an open area
The walkers follow a long narrow path through the woodland
Doggy Style is getting warm and taking off her jacket
Toadstools - not to be eaten!
A beautiful clear day with blue sky
The runners at the beer stop can be seen in the distance
Refreshments and some snacks have been carried by Rear Entry in his rucksack
The runners set off
...closely followed by the walkers
Meanwhile the hare Rear Entry puts the leftovers back into his rucksack
The RA Fair Cop calls the circle to order
Down-downs for the hares

Veteran AH3 hasher Shampoo George arrives to join us but sits as he recently had an operation
Mountain Goat and Clitoria having fun in the circle
Mountain Goat is joined by Vaseline
Strawberry4Skin finishes his beer first
We decide to award Vaseline and the visitors their visitors badges
The badge is dipped in beer and normally placed on the recipient's head
....but Clitoria has another idea in mind
Vaseline wasn't expecting this
And now Vaseline's brother's turn
No peeking Clitoria
He takes it in good fun as it's meant
So there's your souvenir from the Athens Hash put away safely
They are both good sports
However, the two girls sensibly declined their badges. Maybe another time?
Amawanker is awarded his 25 run badge and mug.
GM Mad Dog is given a down-down with the tankard with the hole - but he notices just in time
Shampoo George is given a hash t-shirt
It's great to see him turn up from time to time
What's this - a coffee in the circle? A bit of fun with our visitor
A quick beer after the circle
A post circle chat - hashers naturally form circles
FC & WD went to the Christina Taverna in Loutsa as
none of the other hashers were tavernering this week.
The directions to the hash - for the record
Next AH3 [Athens Hash House Harriers] Hashing event:

From wherever you come:
Follow the road signs to Varibobi, cross the Varibobi Bridge (Flyover) over the National Road to Lamia, continue on this windy road, that after a while becomes a long straight road going slightly uphill, at the end of the road there is a roundabout [with a horse head statue in the middle] and junction with the road coming from Tatoi Airport [note the STOP sign!]
Do not turn left towards Varibobi village.
Do not turn right for the Kings Estate.
Directly opposite the STOP sign there is a small taverna CAVALLARI park in the car park. The run will start here.
