You never know what you might see while sitting down for a snack in Athens. Near the center of this picture you may be able to make out the form of a guy talking to a pair of police officers sitting in their car. A few minutes prior to this scene, the guy was acting generally drunk and disorderly and got into a scuffle with one of the local restaurant owners. Apparently this happens almost every day according to one of the waiters that was enjoying the show. I think the drunk guy operates the little shop that you can see near the left side of the image. As the day goes on he becomes progressively more drunk. In the end nothing happened. It looked like the cops really didn't want to get out of their car. After talking to him for a few minutes, they drove away. I suppose he's a "regular" for them by now. Five minutes later it was if nothing had ever happened.
