Hare: Chocolate Dip
Before the run and walk
The hare prays for a good trail
Lots of colourful hash T-shirts
Chalk talk - Chocolate's trail symbols
And off they go...
The walkers set off led by Coke Dealer who had been briefed by the hare
Some residents of Drosia live in poverty
The walkers arrive back at Semelis Square...
And wait (and wait) for the runners to return. Apparently they were enjoying their beer stop.
The runners finally return and the circle gets underway
The RA Tender Vittles performs a little song and dance routine
Then the hare is brought into the circle

DIRECTIONS TO THIS HASH
Date: Sunday 22 May 11am
Run: 2159 sort of
Hare: CHOCOLATE DIP
Venue: SEMELIS Sq, REA [DROSIA]
On Inn: somewhere local
FROM ATHENS, METROPOLITAN AREA, BY CAR
Take Kifissias avenue towards the North (Kifissias, Venizelou, Thisseos; same avenue, different name) past Kifissia and Nea Erythraia to Ekali.
Turn right to Dionysou avenue when you see the signs to Schinias and the German cemetery (opposite the Narkissos brasserie).
Keep going until you reach the traffic lights at Amadryadon street (opposite Serafeim food shop). Turn right; Semeli square is just a couple of blocks away; you can't miss it as it splits the street in two.
FROM OTHER AREAS VIA THE ETHNIKI ATHINON-LAMIAS (national road)
Take the Ethniki northwards towards Lamia. Take the right exit to Agios Stefanos, it is the next one after Erythraia. Stay on the right and keep going on Kryoneriou avenue, which will become Chelmou as it turns right after the big Sklavenitis super market. Keep going, as it becomes Marathonos avenue, past Anixi, another Sklavenitis, a Jumbo (on the left), and the Arsakio schools, past Drosia (the road is now Thisseos but just keep going), past the green areas left and right. Turn left at the traffic lights with the sign to the German cemetery. Keep going until you reach the traffic lights at Amadryadon street (opposite Serafeim food shop). Turn right; Semeli square is just a couple of blocks away; you can't miss it as it splits the street in two.
FROM WHEREVER VIA PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Get to Kifissia by metro, or the A7 or 550 buses and walk to the KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). Take the 536 from the bus stop there. Check http://telematics.oasa.gr for schedules and time your itinerary generously; the bus is not very regular, especially on Sundays. Get off at Amadryadon (the 6th stop after the bus turns right on Dionysos avenue). Walk in the direction of the bus, turn right to Amadryadon street and walk to Semeli square, just a couple of blocks away.
