Well, we are back in Athens where Dad can enjoy his morning run on the track at the Panathenaic Stadium. We already knew that our apartment water is solar heated, but while we were enjoying lunch on the terrace we noticed that every single building around us has solar heaters on the roof. A great concept for this almost always sunny climate!
The National Archeological Museum is definitely first class. Probably the most unique thing we saw today was the Mask of Agamemnon. This funeral mask is part of almost 14 kg of gold found at Mycenae. We are going to Mycenae on this trip so I suppose that made it even more interesting. It turns out the mask didn't cover Agamemnon's face in his grave, but it did cover someone's. This makes it a creepy but cool choice of costume-wear for any up-coming October parties. What do you think?
You are Always in My Prayers. Love Mom.
