Leaving Piraeus

Taking a boat from Piraeus to the islands is the ultimate summer signifier. This weekend we went to hydra though it is not vacation time yet. Anyway, when you leave from the port of Piraeus, on the rightside of the port there is a huge abandoned area, a kind of post industial wasteland that looks like it could be on some remote industial island. It looks much more interesting than these photos and it's so hot right now that I cannot think properly or say something interesting about it. But it looks like a good place to potentialy hang out or maybe get lost.

Hi, the area you are talking about extends from the conventional cargo station in Irakleous to the area called "Karvounoskala" and it belongs to the municipality of Keratsini. The Piraeus Port Authority is responsible for the infrastructure.
