Nafplio

Woot woot! Another different city! This time, it's Nafplio!
Dates: March 28, 2018

 Greece's first governor was assassinated at this church!
 My dad went to the top...
 Downtown Nafplio!
 Very pretty, and very Greek.
 Here's a famous monument!
 Walk this way!
 I had some really delicious gelato there. It was some "Chocolate Penguin" flavor,
We had a pretty fun time shopping.

And when I went there, I found some dildos at the gift shop. No joke.

Ancient Theater of Epidaurus

Now that I can finally zoom out of Panoramas...
Dates: March 28, 2018

 Here's a whole group posing for a photo!
 Still kept in perfect condition after all these years!
 Click save as, open, and view so you can zoom in to read the text.
 Couldn't sit on them since they were still wet from the rain!
That's my dad!

Only 5 photos this time. That's because I only shared 5 shots of the theater online.

Epidaurus Museum (Post #25!)

Pictures taken at the Archaeological Museum of Epidaurus.
Dates: March 28, 2018

 This is where "epidural" originally comes from.
 Now this is something new...
 And something totally unexpected!
 But that doesn't stop it from being great!

 At one point, I saw the first piece of sheet music known to exist.
 Unfortunately I don't remember where, but it was in a Greek museum.
These statues and ruins are so cool!

Only 8 pictures today because I'm too tired right now.

Ancient ruins of Corinth

There's just something I love about exploring ancient ruins.
Dates: March 28, 2018

 Here's one of the small Kinder egg prizes. (Was supposed to be the last picture in this)
 That is a VERY pretty tree...
 These won't be the only ancient ruins we see! Stay tuned for more!
 Ruins near the museum!
 This place is so much cooler than America, but I've probably said that about Italy.
 It was a very nice day to explore these...
 Had some fun with the flowers!
 Another selfie with my mom. She was 50 in the selfie from last year, so that makes her 51 here!
 What did this used to be again?
 I saw pistachio tree. Tried a pistachio from there!
 Me from a distance in the ruins. What a beautiful mountain.
A small Kinder Egg, that is actually from Greece.

Don't have very much to say right now! Just... I hope you enjoyed!

Piraeus and the Corinth Museum

New sights on a new day!
Dates: March 28, 2018

 Athens has QUITE a lot of Graffiti.
 But at least it's good graffiti. Some may consider it "street art".
 Now what are these exactly, little tubes?
 The Piraeus bridge. Don't look down!
 Now I am in Corinth, a completely different town.
 Corinthians were very different with their styles compared to Athenians.
 These were taken in the Corinth Museum.
 As you can see, the Corinthians used different and more durablenpaint.
 This statue seems to be in pretty good condition.
 A Corinthian table split in half.
 The ruins of a statue of Aphrodite.
 Can you read it? It says "A Female Occupation"
 This is how the Corinthians did pottery.
Head of a man, circa the end of 1st Century B.C.

Poseidon

I took these in the Temple of Poseidon.
Dates: March 27, 2018

 By the way, I did get something at the gift shop there!
 Breathtaking beach...
 This temple belonged to Poseidon, the god of Sea.
 And that explains all the water!
 This temple isn't as iconic as the Parthenon.
 Because it's in worse condition.
 But that's the whole point about ancient ruins!
A Lego model of the Acropolis, a bonus from the Acropolis museum.

It proves that you can do anything with Legos!
