The Acropolis towers over Athens, an amazing place to visit with so much history.
This time we didn’t queue with all the crowds, since we’d visited before. Instead we made a stop at the New Acropolis Museum. This was a modern building with lots of glass, and it holds some incredible treasures. During the excavation to build the museum, they found ruins. They’ve incorporated the ruins into the design by using glass for all the floors and allowing visitors to view them. This photo is part of the ruins that are inside and therefore not protected with glass. Just as an aside, if you ever visit, don’t wear a skirt. With the glass floors, you can look upward and see the people on the floor above…and whatever they’re wearing or not.
While wandering around Athens, the amount of graffiti surprised us.
It’s a real shame to see this while wandering around the city.
These are evil eyes and they’re on sale as souvenirs for tourists. The evil eyes have been around for thousands of years and are used as a talisman to ward off evil.
And this is my car… Snazzy, isn’t it? I couldn’t resist a photo.
What sort of car would you like if money was no object?
