Today we had breakfast then started our day. We went to the National Archaeological Museum; there were ancient Greek things--statues, pottery, even a skeleton. To be honest, it definitely wasn't the most exciting museum I've been to. My favorite parts were the jewelry. I wish they were mine. We had spanikopita for lunch. We walked toward downtown where all the tour shops are. We hopped into a place that formerly was a post office and at one point someone's house. It was lovely.

Since it was 1,000 degrees out, we barely did anything before we stopped for an ice cream break. At least it cooled me off. By this time we had to head back to my uncle's apartment, as they invited some people over for dinner. There was so much food. Greece has been relatively low key, we spend a lot of time in the house.

Today was a good day, I finally felt like I did something worthwhile. I went to the Acropolis, which consisted of the Roman Agora, Ancient Agora, and the Parthenon. I simply loved it. We got off to a late start, but when we got out, it started raining...I mean pouring. But it only lasted about 15 minutes.
