AROUND ATHENS WITH THE ASSEMBLY OF 2007

After the birthday party weekend, the group of us spent several days touring around Athens and nearby areas. This day we went to the Acropolis and Theatre of Dionysos where we sat on the tiers and had an interesting lecture about the ancient Greek theatre by Anna Britt who is a Classical Scholar writing her doctorate on the ancient Greek theatre.

I never get tired of visiting the Acropolis and the last couple of times I've gone, you can view the Carytides without any scaffolding on them. This is one of the most beautiful temples in Athens.

Looking down from the Acropolis, this is a view of Plaka. I used to live in Plaka in the 1980's so this part of Athens is very much a part of my life.
