Patras and Athens

Two busy days to keep you up to speed with. Sitting in our Athens hotel after a full day. Lucy and Mary went to the mighty Acropolis and the National Garden and I went to the National Archaeological Museum

I loved the statues of Aphrodite, the gold death mask of King Menelaus(?) and Hittite female figurines Also a mosiac floor depicting a Gorgon’s head.

Gorgons head.2nd Century AD

On the way back I passed a university building festooned with banners. Not a clue about their anger but elections are forthcoming!

Managed to walk over 4 miles today. A record. Always on.

Off out to eat now following our visit to a chocolate shop. More to tell!!
