DAY 1 GREECE TRAVEL ECHOES  241: LEISURELY  BANKRUPT

 

midnight flight to Greece

muses and mythology

fallen old culture

 

democracy’s birth

no sages to know thyself

live in past grandeur

 

too weak to defend

Rome and Ottoman conquest

staunch orthodoxy

 

icons and symbols

Acropolis in ruin

marbled stadium

 

corrupt governance

booms and busts of rich tourism

clear blue sky and seas

 

charming coastlines

green mountainous wilderness

olives and nuts farm

 

PS.

Apology, having problems loading pictures from Camera to computer.

Olympic Stadium, marbled seats, end of 42 KM Marathon Run, Entry 5 Euro
