Guess Where I Was Yesterday

Sometimes you just have to let the pictures speak for themselves.

Or, maybe someone only just now really figured out how to include photos in her blog.

Yesterday my fellow travelers and I made our pilgrimage via the Panathenian Way to the top of the Acropolis with thousands of others.  Enjoy the view!

This photo is really misleading. It looks like I tried to do something fancy by creating shadow effects on the corners of the image.  Of course my super-model pose only adds to this notion.  The truth, however, is much more mundane.  While oogling the Erechtheon (the temple with the maidens used in the place of pillars), a wind storm blew sand everywhere, including into my camera, jamming the lens-cap feature.  I didn't even realize this had happened until I got down off the mountain!

After attending a performance of traditional Greek dancers in an outside theater, this sight greeted me on the way home.  Breathtaking!

I guess I'll spare you my thousand words about this magnificent structure!

  1. It is an awesome place and one feels overwhelmed just to stand on the Acropolis of Athens. The view of it lit at night is spectacular.
