... anger by defacing Athen's buildings with graffiti. Graffiti is everywhere and is very sad to see.

The National Archeological Museum was very well done. We were glad we took the morning to see it. I think we appreciated it more after our travels to Crete and the Islands because we had learned quite a bit and could recognize many of the references. We loved the performance of the musician playing an Ancient Greek lyre. It is ...

We arrived in Olympia too late to do any visiting; after we checked into our hotel, the kids went to the pool for a couple of hours. HALF-WAY MARK! ============== The program is half over by now! Seems impossible! The time has flown by. So what do I think about it all at this point? The kids: All 6 kids get along amazingly well. Every one of them is well-mannered, respectful to ...

There are a few different temples to look at, although the most famous is the Parthenon. Restoration work is being carried out as they are trying to support the building by filling in the missing parts. I can't imagine what ...
