our day exploring the acropolis was uneventful until we pulled out the flat people for a photo op in front of the parthenon. jay was down on his knees holding up flat hannah, flat ellie and flat sasha high above his head in front of the famous athenian ruin as i focused the camera on their flat forms. my concentration, only on the flat penners, was broken when i heard a woman say, "you can't do that, it's forbidden!". i wasn't sure at first who she was talking to. i took the picture and turned to see what the fuss was about. she came towards us and said again that it was forbidden..."what? is forbidden?", i was wondering. well, apparently you cannot take photos with representations of things or any type of symbol with the parthenon...not even the greek flag. she warned us that if the guards saw us they would confiscate the photo. funny...cuz in the next 15 minutes we took the photo of us in front of it with me wearing a barcelona tshirt and no one said a thing. PLUS we saw many other tourists with logo tshirts doing the same.
that concludes this segment of all things old in greece. we won't bore you with anymore ruins...at least until we get to turkey.
