Where's the hare?
There he is...
Clitoria has a word - but he's been preparing the meal for us
OK, just follow the trail (white flour blobs) - if it hasn't been all eradicated by the dog strollers
And it's all flat and downhill with no shiggy

FROM THE SOUTH:
Coming from Athens go up Kifisias Avenue.
Go through / past Marousi.
Pass a cinema complex on your left.
Syngrou Park is now on your right. Continue on up in the right hand lane for 1/2 km or so. At the traffic light junction for the KAT hospital turn RIGHT into the Syngrou Park car park.
If you pass the park and start to enter Kifisia you have gone past the car-park
entrance. With heavy traffic you may have to turn around at the Kifisia
park / bus station (Get in the left-hand lane).
Going southwards on Kifisias Avenue.
Go through/past Kifisia.
Get into the left-hand traffic lane & then turn left at the KAT traffic lights - directly into the Syngrou Park car park entrance.
If you reach the Nova Odeon Cinema complex on you right-hand side you have
gone too far. Turn round here, as there are traffic lights, else you may
end-up in Marousi.
Metro / Electrico
Take the Piraeus - Kifisia line and get off at the KAT (hospital) station. Once out of the station, walk up the road at right angles to the railway tracks in the
direction of the KAT hospital. You will immediately pass the Venetis store on your right. Keep straight and in 450 metres you reach Kifisias Ave.
Immediately across the road is the Syngrou car park entrance. Remember, this line is slow so leave plenty of time.
