The Temple of Poseidon

If only you could have seen these colors in person. These photos do no justice.

A little beach where we swam in the crisp, clear, sea.

Temenos of Dionysos Eleuthereus

The Parthenon

Our hotel was the blue building in the center of the photograph.

The Erechtheum

Looking north from the Akropolis

But to get a better idea of what the view really looked like, here’s an HDR photo looking west.

The Porch of the Caryatids

Cool street art.

We went to a little bar/distillery, Brettos, that was unfortunately full of tourists.

But my rakomelo (raki boiled with honey from the island of Amorgos) and H’s raspberry liqueur with pineapple juice were so good that it didn’t matter. Need to go back to try the tsipouro.

These signage pieces were hauntingly swaying in the cool evening breeze.

View from the roof deck.

View from Mount Lycabettus

So much character.

Love the welded coin.

Back to the Temenos of Dionysos Eleuthereus

The ΗΟΡΟΣ ΚΡΝΕΣ inscription was marked as a thing to see, but I still don’t know what it is.

More cool street art.

The Temple of Hephaistos. Not shown: the crowd of tourists doing the exact same thing that I was.

Tokens used to vote on someone to exile, if I remember correctly.

This was a little shop here that had the best food of our trip. Too bad we found it on the last day we were there.
