This week, Keri Jones reports from Athens. He visits some of the archaeological sites, goes on a food walk and hears how the city has changed since the 2015 Greek cash crisis. Plus: The Silk Road – the ancient trade route linking China to Europe – passes through some of the least-visited and mysterious countries in the world; If you’re thinking about exploring the route, you should read John Brenson’s guide, Silk Road Traveller: In The Heart of Central Asia, for his insight and knowledge of the region.
