One of the most crowded sites we visited was The Acropolis in Athens. For those of you who have been to Disney World, imagine it at peak tourist season on the hottest day of the year. That is what touring the Parthenon felt like this July – no shade and crowds galore. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we went to see where the ancient Athenian democratic process took place. But man, it was crazy that day! This photo I managed to snap without any tourist in it (a special feat that day) and it captures the preserved culture of Athens perfectly.
