On the Road Again #65


One can’t leave without climbing the Acropolis which holds sway over the teaming city, high above the fumes and squeeling tyres of the mental traffic.
Surmounted by the Parthenon it’s a must visit wonder, best experienced at dawn before the crowds. Whilst elegant and dignified, a marvel built nearly 500 years BC as a temple to Athena it’s a superstar without a skirt - beautiful legs but missing her girdle. How Lord Elgin managed to con the Ottomans into letting the marbles go is baffling. How would we feel if the Magna Carta had been spirited away in the other direction?
