Okay, I’ll be straight up frank with you all, I’m trying to watch a movie and extremely distracted
Today we went into Athens and to the Acropolis and of course the Parthenon. I’ll be the first to admit that I thought the Acropolis and the Parthenon were two different places. Therefor it was a treat to get to see both of them at once – ha!! It turns out that the highest point of the city is known as the Acropolis and the Parthenon is one of the temples at the top.
We arrived and began the hike up the extremely steep slippery marble steps. The tickets claimed there were “80 steps” to climb, though I beg to differ it was a lot more than 80 steps…I think it was actually 80 steps to the bathroom. There was a little old lady who told the tour guide she wouldn’t be joining us all the way to the top because it was to much walking, but she was said she’d walk with us to the bathrooms and then meet us back at the bottom when we were done. Turns out that the 80 steps were just to the bathroom and by the time this lady made it to the bathroom she realized if she’d made it that far she could make it to the top and she did!
We took a bunch of pictures with the 12th Man Flag and also with the EBC newsletter, but those are on other cameras but like I mentioned earlier I’m to busy watching the movie! I’ll try to post those pictures to at least Facebook and Twitter tomorrow, until then you’ll just have to imagine!
We start our first day in Turkey tomorrow, but don’t have a tour so that means I can sleep in! Yay!!
