Greece Land and Sea

This trip started in Athens our hotel was walking distance from the Plaka, located at the foot of the Acropolis and the tomb of the un known soldier. The Plaka is like a village in itself with cobbled streets, little shops and many restaurants. Waiters wait anxiously for your patronage and it is almost like a competition to get customers. Here is my story my other three friends and I went to the Plaka and I thought I had established landmarks so we would have no problems in finding our way back to our hotel. We were joined by another lady who was travelling by herself. Somehow on our return involved in conversations I was left behind with the new lady to my dismay my landmarks eluded me and the next thing I know we were totally lost. To bout I did not have the address of the hotel and there was the language barrier and just panic was beginning to set in as it was getting dark I somehow found my way back to the hotel to find my roommate in a tizzy fit as she did not know what had happened to me. .

We took the hike up to the Acropolis to get an up close and personal view of the Parthenon. There was no shade there, I saw a single olive tree which I called a baby tree that could provide no cover from the pelting sun. It is my suggestion if you plan on visiting you should go early because it gets very hot. The view was spectacular just below was the amphitheater and a great view of the city.

This is the view of the amphitheater from the Acropolis where artists still perform.

After our descent we drove by bus to another viewing point to get another perspective of the Parthenon. It should be noted that the Parthenon is visible just about anywhere you are around the city.
