Athens Day 2

A lovely day wandering around Athens. After a great breakfast at the hotel, we headed off to the Theatre of Dionysus, where we discussed Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides…
Next on to the Acropolis, and all its world-famous treats…
Then up on to the Areopagus and then down to the Agora, including the impressive Temple of Hephaestus…
Next off for a moussaka lunch, and then the Pnyx and the Acropolis Museum in the afternoon…
Finally back to the hotel for dinner, which was very good, and then the Karagiozis Shadow Puppet Theatre after dinner.
What a day! We had some rain, but not very much, and the students seemed to enjoy themselves. Some even spontaneously acted out a scene from Aristophanes on the Pnyx!
Epidavros tomorrow!
