A slow Saturday

Last night was operation bonding with the guys over here, today is operation recover from bonding. Anyway, I managed to sneak out for a while, I enjoy taking a short walk every day, and it was well worth the effort.

The Parthenon (which have been presented in a number of different photos by now, I really gotta stop taking shots of the damn building). View from the Mouseion Hill.

The Mouseion Hill is crowned by this monument, a mausoleum for Gaius Iulius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappus who was a Commagenian prince (a small Hellenistic kingdom), suffect consul 109 AD and archon at Athens at one point. Notice that this spot was absolutely superb for any monument which testifies to how important the man was.

Roads should be horizontal right? God, I hope that they've got good breaks.
