Almost Wordless Wednesday

Just a few pics from the last week of sight seeing...

Central Athens in the Monasteraki area.

A view over Athens.

A reconstructed Treasury at Delphi... this site is 2000 plus years old!!!

Part of the temple of Apollo at Delphi...

Coming from a relatively young country (New Zealand), I just can't get over how old some of this stuff is, and how amazing the sculptures and buildings were.  It is a shame most of it is in ruins, but when you think about how old it all is and how many wars and occupations it has been through it kind of makes sense.
