The Project Of Pericles


The photo above is the Parthenon--one of the most famous bulldings (or what's left of it!) in the world. Of course, much of what one wants to see now resides in the British Museum, much to the chagrin of the Greek people! I visited the Acropolis this morning and then strolled through the Ancient Agora on my way to lunch. Pretty heady stuff: walking where Socrates walked!

By the way, my tip for a meal in Athens: O Thanasis near the Monastiraki metro stop: best souvlaki I have ever had!
