Did you know?
Cocaine works in a totally different way from narcotics such as morphine or heroin. Heroin works on receptor sites in the brain which are stimulated by the drug to produce pain-relieving and mood-enhancing chemicals. Cocaine on the other hand works by stimulating the central nervous system, and like alchohol, is processed through the liver.

Saturday, 28th April:

Time for another "Tourist Day" today!!

Decided to visit the infamous Acropolis today - it's only been about 3 weeks in Athens, so not too bad going!

Anyway, was as good as I could have imagine.  The only slight flaw is that they are currently doing quite a bit of extensive restoration work on the main monument, which meant I wasn't really able to take "proper" photographs of the monument, without them being ruined by scaffolding or the crane.  But managed to talk some of the Acropolis monument in any case, and more importantly, the panoromic views around the Acropolis.  Absolutely awe-insipiring, definitely made me feel at ease!  Viewings of the Plaka area underneath of the Acropolis area is an amazing view - the view of hustle and bustle from above.

The €12 was a bargain, as it also enabled you to visit 5 other tourist areas within Athens:

  1. Ancient Agora
  2. Theatre of Dionysos
  3. Romain Agora
  4. Kerameikos
  5. Template of Olympian Zeus

I managed to use the opportunity to also visit the "Temple of Dionysos" on the East Slope of the Acropolis, the "Ancient Agora" towards the Northern area plus the "Temple of Olympian Zeus" which is towards the Eastern area - a short walking distance from the Acropolis, actually I walked passed this several times without realising it was there!

Whilst visiting the Temple of Olympian Zeus, I also Panathenaic Stadium.  I visited the Stadium during my first weekend in Athens, but it was so crowded I couldn't take any "good" photos, so decided to come back some other time.  For some strange reason about 6pm on a Saturday, it was deserted.  I managed to take some really nice shots of the stadium arena, plus managed to get my 'relaxing' photo taken by some kind visitors too. 

Again, these will appear on the Gallery page shortly!
