|Katie and Pantheon.|
After the acropolis my friends and I went to the acropolis museum. As many of the world knows the Acropolis museum has an empty room in which the Greeks are saving for the sculptures from the Pantheon that are currently sitting in the British museum...the Brits do not feel the need to give them back to Greece. I used to think that the Brits should obviously give the statues back since they were stolen, but after visiting the Acropolis museum I really don't think Greece needs them. They have hundreds upon hundreds of sculptures and artifacts which is just a smidge overwhelming, that's my opinion. Most of the time while we were in Athens I just couldn't get over the amount of history that took place there and the fact that I was there and walking amongst the streets of Greece was unreal feeling. Lots of feels there. Mostly hunger though because Gyros happened.
Speaking of GYROS! (Pronounced "Yur-oh's") As it was nearing lunch when we finished at the museum and our stomachs knew it, I suggested to the group that we go find some gyros (yur-oh's). My friends had no clue what that was but I reassured them by describing what they were with the word "delicious". I figured that summed them up rather nicely. And since I am such a great saleswoman they were sold on that. We scoured the city until we found one, and it was 100% worth it. DELICIOUS. Amazing, so cheap and so worth it. Now I want one. Shoot, I shouldn't write these posts when I'm hungry.
Satisfied bunch of travelers we became which meant it was time to see more sites. We went to this open field which contained some old ruins, apparently the oldest ruins in Greece, it was called Olympian Park.
Standing in a stadium that is infamous for it's olympic games was exciting, so exciting that I decided to sit in the king and queen's thrones placed around the stadium. Woo woo. I also pretended I was a medal winner in the Olympic Game when I walked across the field to the podiums. Way cool.
