Of course it was late night shopping and the entire population of Athens was out in the streets so I joined in the general mayhem and went shopping, ever mindful of my ...

... place; a bronze medal to second place. On one side of the medal, Zeus holding a sphere on which stands Nike, Goddess of Victory, holding an olive branch. On the other side of the medal, the Acropolis with the Parthenon. This stadium houses every single one of the Olympic torches that have been used since 1896.

So where to next? Santorini.....and rain...if you believe the forecast! Come on Zeus, do your magic!
