IN PHOTOS: Athens, Greece

In this second entry under In Photos, I am delighted to post five pictures that for me best represent Athens, the capital city of Greece. Even back when I was a kid, I have been mesmerized by the Greek culture, as I have always been fascinated with the myths. But when I came face-to-face with the colossal landmarks that dot the Athenian skyline, my fascination was converted to adoration.

It's a pity, the renovation of the
Parthenon is not yet finished. It would have been beautiful without cranes and debris!!!

I think the conservation work is a perpetual commitment when it comes to the Parthenon. It's just that I went to Greece in a lean month, so the Tourism Board didn't take out the cranes. Thanks for visiting!
