I'm Back

Well I'm back from Greece!

I just flew in from Athens last night, and boy are my arms tired! ;)

Seriously though, Greece is has some really beautiful land and interesting historical places to see. I loved Delphi, was mezmorized by the Parthenon lit up at night, and got to run on the Olympic race track. Unfortunately, the people in mainland Greece were not very nice. In fact, with a few notable exceptions (like the wonderful staff at the Divani Acropolis Hotel Rooftop Garden), the people were the most dissapointing part of the trip. Perhaps all that "Greek Hospitality" is only on the islands, because getting people to help me was like pulling teeth at times. Was it because of the language barrier? Or perhaps the summer heat and crowds? Or maybe becausae I rarely travelled off the beaten path? In any case, it really put a damper on my trip.

That being said, I still got some really cool pictures I plan to post here in the future. Some highlights include the Tomb of Agemmemnon, Delphi, the Parthenon, the Temple of Zeus, and Olympia.

Stay tuned!
