Greece & Italy {Part 5}

In front of the Parthenon!
      We took a plane to Athens, Greece and there were many adventures that came with that. But arriving at the Acropolis, seeing Mars hill, passing the first Olympic stadium-- Greece held just as many treasures as Italy. Whereas Sorrento had masses of lemon and orange groves Athens was  covered with olive trees.
     When most of the sight seeing was done, we grabbed lunch in an outside cafe. I was refreshing to sit outside, eat some good food and be with really awesome people. But when the evening came, we got to dine at the Placa, which is like a little neighborhood of restaurants at the foot of the Acropolis. It's the place to be in the evening when all the Greeks are lounging on the steps outside drinking their wine and eating their Spanikopita. Somehow I got pulled into a ten minute display of my Greek dancing skills, but it made the night unforgettable.
