Days 1920-1930: Europe 2012 - Part 7 - Athens

This is the last of the European vacation series. I hope you've enjoyed it

The Temple of Zeus.
It is crazy to think how long this has been around, 2000 years+!

Feral cats are so cute.

Theatre of Dionyses (sp?)

Some ampitheatre at the Acropolis where they STILL perform!

The Erechtheum at the Acropolis.

My mother told me an interesting fact.
The hair on these women is down because when their hair was
up, the women could not hold up the building. Putting their
hair down allowed the statues to stand. Cool, right?

The Parthenon

So, this is one of six sights we could see on
our Acropolis ticket. I can't remember which
site this is, but what I can tell you is that it was
closed. At 3pm of all times.

So was this one.

This one too.

Can you imagine seeing this daily? Wow.
