Being Athenian

Athens, Greece

Had a fun day checking out everything in Athens. We went to the Acropolis and saw the ruins. It is up really high. I bet my Chicken Sisters wouldn't go up there. We made some new friends up there. The ruins look like a castle but they are really a temple. There are really deep holes where the ancient Greeks buried their broken statues. There is a temple for the goddess Athena. Athens is named after Athena. She was the goddess of Wisdom. I wanted to see a statue of Athena but she wasn't there. Her statue got burned in a fire and I don't know if maybe chunks of it we're put in the deep hole. There is also a temple for Poseidon. He was the god of the sea but he also should have been the god of hiking because it was a big hike to get to the top.
There are dogs at the Acropolis and also at the Temple of Zeus. They don't have homes. People make sure they have their shots and the dogs just eat what food people give them. I wish someone would take them home.year
We went to the Acropolis museum and learned about statues.
We saw the guards at the Parliament buildings. There were lots of pigeons there. We went to a stadium that was built a long time ago but that is supposed to look like one that was built even longer ago. Sometimes school children go there for their gym class.
There is a part of Athens called the Plaka. It has lots of shops and restaurants. When we were eating, people bugged us to buy things. We had dinner there. I tried lamb but I am not really a fan of it.

I'm not a Chicken!

It would have been very cool to learn all about Athena, especially since we know someone with that name!

I'm not a Chicken either! I was at the Acropolis... I won't say whether or not I was scared.
