Mad Hair Salon & Roast Duck Lunch

Aloha Everyone,

One of the few things the two of us treat ourselves is spending a few hours at a salon where we get pampered. Mad Hair Salon is located within the exclusive Athens shopping district. Following a screen shot on my iPhone, we easily found the location less than 5 minutes walk from our hotel. It is located on a pedestrians only street.

Once we explained what the two of us needed, they plunged right into action. The best feature of having my manicure and pedicure from Andriana, was that she is studying reflexology and applied the techniques on my feet and hands. I could’ve stayed in the reclining chair the entire day.

Artemis, the salon’s professional hairstylist was a charming lady. She and I talked about each other’s children and our travels.  She was very pleased how she styled my hair.

Kristina, the person the other two referred to as “the boss” was a gracious woman. The two of us basically communicated with our eyes realizing both of us lacked necessary words to ask questions and learn from each other.

I appreciate these rare opportunities to avail to special services. Once we are back in the USA, J.J. and I will forgo such luxuries.

J.J. had seen roast ducks hanging in the window. So to the Chinese Restaurant we went to have a Roast Duck lunch. The server spoke very little English and didn’t even know where Hawaii is :-/. At least the food was good. We ordered two set menus.  I was quite filled with the corn soup followed by vegetarian spring rolls. J.J. is enjoyed the second portions of duck with fried rice for his dinner.

Aloha -- Cathi
