I know this vaca was way back in May and it's now August, (where does the time go) but I have to finish posting all of these pictures of our amazing trip, after all, this is my journal!

Here we go... our adventures for this day (or at least what I can remember, it was three months ago)

We woke up bright and early and I was so excited we were in Athens, mainly because I studied the Greek Parthenon in my humanities class the previous semester. When I opened the curtains I have to admit, I was a little disappointed, I guess I was expecting Athens to look somewhat like maybe the scenery in Hercules, regardless it was not at all what I had pictured in my head. It looked like NYC, but WAY more crowded with buildings and LOTS of tourists. We drove about an hour into the city and finally made it to the Parthenon. It felt like 100 degrees, there were thousands and thousands of people everywhere you turned and there women with whistles who were not afraid to use them (ex. if you sat on a rock in the line up to the Parthenon to take rest so you wouldn't die of heat stroke, those ladies would whip those whistles out and blow them in your face and scream some form of gibberish, I'm guessing they meant to say something like don't sit on those precious stones that are thousands of years old? I don't know, all I know is I was tired and wanted to give my feet a rest).

Regardless of the heat, the tourists and the crazy whistle ladies, I consider myself very fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to visit such a historic place that dates back before Christ. As an added bonus, that I was able to visit the Parthenon a couple of weeks after I was finished studying it.

Stay tuned for the rest of the trip. I'll try to finish posting before school starts but there's no guarantees.
