The Acropolis sits high on a hill overlooking all of Athens with it’s mostly white homes outstretched as far as you can see. It’s a hard time to visit with all the political problems there. We didn’t wander to far from the bus and stayed pretty much on the tourist route. Grabbing a photo without all the other tourist in the way was a challenge, but what an incredible piece of history to be part of.

Acropolis, Athens Greece

Probably not the best of times to be hanging out in Athens, Greece. It was hot and sticky with alot of demonstrations and unrest going on. We found it best to stay low key and visit the major tourist routes. The Acropolis of Athens being one such place was heavy with tourist. So trying to get a decent photo of a spot that has seen a billion photographs was not easy. Working around groups of tourist took a bit of patients but I guess sooner or later you find your shot. All of Athens as far as you can see, primarily of white structures, sprawl out from atop this ancient citadel.
