First of all I want to acknowledge that IT IS SARAH'S BIRTHDAY MONTH! Beautiful sunny day in Delphi. We are off for a full morning tour of Ancient Delphi and it's museum. The guide told us all the tales of the importance of Delphi and how The Oracle under the temple was really a woman who was sniffing ether from an underground fault.

That all being said, it was well worth the effort. Kastraki sits at the foot of Meteora - the bastion of Orthodox monks who have made their home in the stark pinnacles ...
