A picture of my roommates and I with the view of the Parthenon.
There were a lot of stairs to get to the top, but the view was worth it! The view of the Acropolis at sunset was beautiful (see below). We met several interesting people there from around the world. At one table Canadians, Americans, Germans and Brazilians were represented. The different perspectives and conversations with people from around the world were very enlightening.
We made friends with three Phi Psis from University of Colorado-Boulder at the Hostel. Here are pictures from our scenic detour in Athens with them below. On our long route, we saw the National guards in their uniforms. It was interesting to see them march and stand guard. And two stood guard at the gate, raised their legs and clacked their clogs together.
