Strolling the Acropolis

Athens, Greece

No visit to Athens is complete without a visit to the Acropolis, the home of the Parthenon. "Acropolis" means city by the edge and the site was likely picked for defense against invading forces. Acropolis "Hill" towers over the city of Athens. Although there are numerous acropolises in Greece, only the one in Athens is known solely as the Acropolis. The history of the Acropolis is the stuff of Greek mythology. For a more detailed look at the Acropolis, visit Matt Barrett's Athens Survival Guide On this early Sunday morning, we took a tour bus which dropped us on this street just outside the Acropolis. It was an overcast day with a bit of on and off raindrops. As I looked down the street, the skies, while looking ominous, has some very nice beams of light. I thought that the scene was a great backdrop and the two lone people walking on it gave it some interest (by the time we were done, there were people everywhere).
