Standing in front of the Parthenon
I remember from the air so many beautiful buildings and the waters surrounding so very blue. I remember music, food, dancing. It was the first time I had ever seen a lamb on a rotisserie outside motel which was in Glyfada Beach. There was a festival going on and excitement in the air. The beach was beautiful, so pristine and very secluded.
Our trip to Sounion was the most beautiful ride. The cliffs, the buildings the water...the columns...gorgeous.
Athens even back then was a very busy place but so much fun. We wanted to go where the people go not tourists and were successful in doing some of that. We went to a nightclub in Athens and had lots of fun. We ate several places but I don't remember their names. One was a little more formal and all I can remember was the dancing and of course throwing of the dishes and goblets...I can hear the music now. (for those of you that know my love for dishes that was extremely hard to do...break a dish and goblet...against my grain...but fun). We ate several places on the sidewalk and food was good but not at all like we have here.
The Parthenon....breathless to be there. Souvenirs brought home were a flokata beautiful rug, and a sculpture I have and love to this day. We had a great time walking at night and talking with the Greek fisherman at the docks.
What we saw flying into Greece
Wonderful memories: the history, the architecture, the sheer beauty, wonderful food, fun and dancing.
