Athens pictures

Finally.
There's a cow in the road on my way to Athens. Thanks Albania











Empty Athens at like 5 AM when I got there. This is the middle of the tourism area outside Acropolis

View from Acropolis museum






The "birth" of Athena from the pantheon

Did you know the full story? Didn't know the way to cure a headache is to get hit in the head with an axe. I'll have to remember that. 










Gate by the temple of Zeus

Temple of Zeus pics start here















Bathhouse from the temple of Zeus grounds







There was an awesome park hidden somewhere in Athens







The hike to Acropolis started. 







They are setting up for a concert down there

The entrance to Acropolis







Restoration work going on for a long time. 







Athens is big. Lots of sprawl


















The end of my day.

Start day 2 - archaeology museum

You see penises everywhere in these things. Pay attention. There are a bunch. I don't think I got a lot of pictures of them tho. 



These are all frying pans



We have the same armadillo holding a bowl at my house. Got it from a Philly artist. 




Death mask of some guy










Worlds oldest piggy bank

Look, another penis






Kinda penisy. 









Dammit it's sideways. They're little emblems and the black and white things under them show what was once on them. There were a lot of them. 

Kid riding a horse. The horse had black holes for eyes. Kinda creepy. 







Theater mask

Read this. Makes the next picture so much better. 




Zeus or Poseidon, they don't really know
