On the way up to the hill we met a friend who joined us for a two hour walking. 🙂 Actually he was leading us because he knew the way. If we stopped to take photos, he also stopped and waited for us. During the whole walk we didn’t talk but we knew he liked us… we liked him too.
Look at this photo of him carefully to be sure of recognizing him, if you should travel to Athens someday. And if you happen to pass by there, I beg you not to hurry past. Wait a little, just under the star! Then if a black dog yelp to you, if he doesn’t answer your question, you will know who he is. If this should happen, be kind! Don’t let me go on being so sad: send word immediately that he’s come back…
We carried on walking to the Acropolis. On the way there we passed the Hadrian’s Arch. It is a monumental gateway resembling – in some respects – a Roman triumphal arch. It spanned an ancient road from the center of Athens, Greece, to the complex of structures on the eastern side of the city that included the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
At sunrise we took photos of the Acropolis. It was so beautiful. We ended our day in a gorgeous cafe-bistro, Yiasemi. We sat down next to the fireplace, drank hot chocolates and ate home made pies. It was a perfect ending of our day.
Stay tuned… more to come!
