A walk in Athens...


Ouzo and fresh home grown grapes given to us at the end of our several hour lunch


Street vendor food, yummy sesame pretzal like bread...


Street signs contain ancient Greek, modern Greek and English lettering...


Changing of the guard..
Radio City Rockettes, watch out for these high kickers.


Look, it's the Acropolis...


Odeon Theatr at the base of the Acroplis...
We sat on these ancient marble seats, under the moonlit sky and watched a ballet.
Tribute to Rudolph Nureyev 
Sigh


Park bench, shady plaza, and an iPhone...

Thanks for sharing My {View}

Oh these photos are just awesome Catherine! You must have had a wonderful trip. I love the one looking down into the Odeon Theatr. Seeing a ballet there under the moonlight must have been magical!

I love your sunny, warm photos (it's been cold and rainy here). And ballet under the stars -- heavenly!
I so want to go to Greece with my daughter!

Thanks for the view!
