June 7 - Athens

I awoke with our ship secured in the Piraeus Port, a "suburb" of Athens, and with a compelling energy surging through my being connecting me to ancient Greek mythology, ancient Greek civilization, and present day Athens with its metropolitan population of 4.5 million, a rapid transit system that puts the CTA to shame, 39 stadiums built for the 2004 Olympics now abandoned, and 12 million olive tree in all of Greece. Our tour of the Acropolis, the Corinth Canal, and the ruins of Corinth will be anchored in memory with my pictures, soon to be uploaded to my Shutterfly account.
