Saints in Greece -- first full day

By walking a loop around the Acropolis and Plaka yesterday, we acquainted ourselves with the basic layout if historic Athens, which we explored today.  Last night some students chose to walk with Dr. Grissom, Mrs. Streed, and me to see the Areopagos, now a large rock overlooking the city but once the ancient court of Athens.  Today we toured the Acropolis, Agora, and Roman Forum all day 8:30am - 3:00pm.  Everyone then had time to explore the Plaka near the hotel, eat, relax, and/or shop.  Students are enjoying much needed downtime before a late evening cultural dinner tonight.  (Hopefully photos will follow once I figure out how.  I am downloading apps to make this work and learning as I go.  I just figured you would want to hear from us regardless of pictures.)

Dear Travelers to Greece,

Based on the three photos, this merry band looks like it's having a marvelous time. Are other photos posted that I've missed? Or are you all so busy that we'll need to wait till you're back to see more?

PS Is the second photo the Temple of Hephaestus?
