DAY 2!!

Today we got the exciting opportunity to go and see the Acropolis!! That was the most amazing thing! We also saw Mars Hill where apostle Paul spoke! That was really cool; we climbed the original steps! They were very slippier, which was difficult but worth it. Before the Acropolis we got to see the Temple of Olympian Zeus! It was originally built with 104 columns, but only 16 colums are left. After all the climing we went shopping! In the old markets, we all bought a lot of souvenirs. Then dinner, we had cheese salad, stuffed tomatoes with potatoes, and lamb with potatoes. It was all very good after a long day of walking. We then got to go to the bakery; boy, did it smell good in there! Today was a very awesome day learning about all of the gods and goddesses; such as: Aphrodite, Ares, Athena, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hermes, Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis, Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Zeus. Some of us have found we are very similar to some of the gods and goddesses.
