Back again..

sorry for my lack of updating.. due to my lack of internet on my trip
but I'm home now and ready to let yall know what has been going on over here!
Last week, we spent the day before our trip on a Scavenger hunt to see how much we could find around the city. Our competitiveness quickly replaced our feelings of laziness and little care for such things as a scavenger hunt, and we found ourselves running around the city trying to find these place, Im pretty sure we won. After we celebrated my friends Nick's 21st b-day by grabbing some beers and playing some pool and darts before heading home to make him a mexican dinner and pack for our big trip.
Happy Bday! 

Liberty Square

very concerned on finding these places


The next morning bright early at 5:30, I was up and down to the buses to start off toward Athens. After arriving in Athens, we checked in then we went to explore for the rest of the day. We found a park below the Acropolis and explored the ruins for a while and walked the streets. 

Later, Ravi and I decided we would climb to the top of Lycabettus hill. Which was absolutely amazing and probably one of my favorite things I have done so far. We left around five and got there with enough time to see all of Athens in daylight, then stay to have a drink at the bar up there and watch the sunset and all of Athens start to light up. Its tough to beat having a glass of sangria while watching the sun set over Athens

That night we found a roof top bar that overlooked the Acropolis. The Acropolis is lit up at night and is absolutely amazing to see. After, we attempted to go dancing at a more local bar, but that ended early when i stubbed my toe and started bleeding everywhere. Oh well, there was much more to come. 


Acropolis at night

The next morning the whole group met and went up to the Acropolis museum, which had some amazing statues and other artifacts. I could have gotten lost in there all day if we hadn't been on a time schedule. We then headed up to the top of the Acropolis. Which was amazing to stand next to, minus the hundreds of other people up there.
