Around the World in 80 Days
Day 5: 29 September
Three o'clock in the afternoon. Vast numbers of boats of all kinds around the port of Athens at Piraeus remind you that the Greeks still regard themselves as a seafaring nation. But in a bay almost out of sight are dozens of super-tankers, laid up and rusting, a reminder that the golden days of the 1960s and early 1970s are over and may never return.
