Final day in Athens
MOS...we climbed up from the base of the Acropolis and found today was a free day, no entry fee. Nice surprise. It was nice seeing the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena; the temple of Athena Nike; and a couple of amphitheaters and other ‘old stuff.’ Amazing construction, done with NO equipment to speak of back then. Lots of restoration going on, some to try to ‘fix’ previous fixes. We ran into several of our "Monaco" friends from the ship who are staying at other hotels. Small world. Pics will be posted after we get home next week, since we don't have the cable for that particular camera with us.
We four took a train ride down the coast just to watch the scenery; hopped off and enjoyed a nice lunch, and then headed back to the hotel to rest up a bit before dinner. Tuff life. I am enjoying someone’s free wifi, although the strength is pretty low--the price is right, though:-)
The Privens have a noon flight back home tomorrow (Friday). We leave at 4p for Prague. Life is good.
