Έχω καταντήσει σαν κάτι γονείς που πιέζουν τα παιδιά τους να βγάλουν μια φωτογραφία μαζί
Scaffolding or not, that’s the Parthenon. This is actually the line I kept repeating to myself 100 times today, in a state of semi confusion and slack-jawed wonder roaming the hot pavements of Athens after a series of 11 buses, trains, metros, taxi, ferry and other combinations from Italy. One fellow tourist in my hotel later told me helpfully the Parthenon “is just a pile of rocks” but I would politely beg to differ. This pile has been sitting here since 438BC! It’s one of the most enduring symbols of Western civilisation and Athenian democracy. Carvings, inscriptions, and motifs decorate the columns, while in other parts the sign of passing feet, centuries of rain, tools or other elements have left their mark. Truly, an incredible “pile of rocks” to visit.

Ended an amazing week in #greece on a rooftop overlooking the acropolis. My experience has been just as magical as the last time. This country has soo much to offer and I'm eager to return and discover more. Yassas Hellas until next time 💙 🇬🇷 #visitgreece
