Team Turkey’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 06 Sep 2008

Location: Athens, Greece

Map6th and 7th Sept
Saturday and Sunday

The following two days we had an amazing time. The four of us walked all over the city visiting the Acropolis and Parthenon (500-600BC),
National Museum of Archeology and both the Greek (500-600 BC) and Roman (100 AD) Angora (shopping area). Our sight seeing also included
a steep cable car ride through a tunnel up to the top of a hill, the highest point in the city, to see the sunset over the predominately
white buildings of the city.

After 2 exhausting days and 3 nights we packed up again and after missing the 1pm coach by 10 minutes, mainly because we couldn't find a taxi then the traffic was heavy and to top it off, our taxi got stuck behind a public bus that kept stopping, we left on the 3.30pm coach
for the small village of Delphi, high up in the mountains.
