Acropolis and Agora

So it turns out the August 15th (the day I arrived in Greece), is a public holiday (it’s the day the Orthodox church commemorates the Virgin Mary ascending into heaven) and literally the entire city shuts down.  Thankfully all the archeological sites were free, so I guess it balances out.

    • You should be more jealous of the fact I live in Istanbul. There’s a reason that it was the capital of the Byzantine Empire AND that the Greek Orthodox church is still headquartered there. They could have chosen Athens for both of those things.
