We were in Arachova on a business trip off-season, so we missed some of the delights of a first-class hotel--breakfast (which was sumptuous) was delivered to my terrace view as there were no other guests. The town was a close walk and interesting. The hotel must be fabulous during ski season.

At the bottom of the Sacred Way, across the road, was the Gymnasium where the athletes trained and the Baths where they washed afterwards. The whole place was wrapped up in the Pythian Games, which was rated right up there with the Olympiad (Olympic) Games. Way below our campsite at the bottom of the mountain stretched the plains out to the Gulf of Corinth....where the chariots ...

Donning my birthday tiara, I rocked out with the fellows to some sweet tunes provided by our driver and admired the Grecian country side. Our first unexpected site to see was a memorial for the WWII Massacre of Distomo.
... as a liaison with the House of Representatives and Rebecca is a dentist in Virginia Beach. High school sweethearts from Martinsburg, WV (an area where some of my kinfolk left to move to KY in 1799), they were a delightful young couple. We enjoyed dinner with our three new friends at a local taverna. Great conversation and a few glasses of wine.
All in, Meteora is a place to ...
