ATHENIAN GLORY

Well I guess everyone knows I am in Athens now and so without further ado having found an internet cafe that takes my stick if you'll pardon the expression here are some first pictures, and it being Friday it's an Athenian Take Five Friday on the photoblog ok?









Thanks to almost everyone for comments and support you know I couldn't do it without you!
Thought you'd prefer to see the pics than have me answering comments and come over to yours but non of your help and encouragement will go unforgotten!!

Hopefully more tomorrow, it's a big and beautiful place!

Those are beautiful pictures of the ruins. The "modern" buildings I can do without....they are just another piece of the concrete jungle and lack the beauty of days gone by.

I hope to get there one day myself!
