Greece day 10

Last day here in the land of mythology. We all woke up fairly early in Athens to go tour the Acropolis museum which holds the supposed mask of Agamemnon, a very powerful leader who once successfully ruled the Mycenae people. There were also many other artifacts that consisted of much gold and bronze detailed handy work. There was also an Egyptian Section to the museum along with much other fascinating historical civilizations and also the first computer. After this museum we headed off to a delicious restaurant where I had an incredible smoked salmon caesar salad smothered in mustard sauce. Mick also enjoyed a fabulous pizza with 5 different cheeses. The 2nd museum was the Acropolis Museum, which was actually built on top of an excavation site of the Mycenaean people. The majority of the floor was glass, which was quite a thrill, because it had the illusion that you were almost floating above the site. The majority of this museum was about the Parthenon and they had multiple artifacts from it. After this adventure a short rest at the hotel followed. Then we all traveled over to a great dinner at a small place that a actually was under the city streets. We all deeply enjoyed that. Next we had about an hour and a half or so to explore, shop, and eat gelato which seems to have become our little tradition after lunch and dinner. Now it’s off to bed to gain some rest for our 4:20 wake up time tomorrow morning. This has been nothing less than an amazing, fun-filled adventure with Mr. Assaf, Mr. Anthony, and Ms. Peterson. We could not of asked for anything better and we all deeply appreciate the time and effort you have put into organizing this outstanding trip. We all thank you again and hope you have a ball on your next one!

While everyone was taking a nap at the hotel, Ms. Peterson, Chris, Michael, and I all went to the subway to find a Greek sandal maker. The shop was full of hand-made leather goods. Ms. Peterson and I both got handmade sandals that the shop owner fit specifically to our feet. I also bought a really cool handmade backpack. It was a really cool excursion and I’m really glad I went.
