Athens, 26 August

The Acropolis of Athens: hot, crowded and utterly facinating.





At the base of the Acropolis is a very fine new museum, with a full scale representaion of the Parthenon on its third level. Many of the friezes and other carvings are arranged as they would have appeared on the temple itself, with the notable (and often mentioned) exception of the Elgin Marbles (in some museum in London).

I agree.... well worth seeing all this, despite the heat and the crowds.
