Acropolis

It was almost like a miracle. For days we´ve been dreading the climb up to the Acropolis, but as this is the site noone can leave Athens without visiting, we knew we´ll have to do it. Athens can be incredibly hot at this time of the year, with temperatures often rising up to 35 - 40C and with a 7 month pregnant woman, full camera gear and very low fitness level I was definitely not looking forward to it. However, Pallas Athene must have decided to give us a break as the morning of the dreaded climb thick fluffy clouds covered the skies, a light breeze was lingering in the air and in the end, I swear we were almost cold by the time we got up to the Acropolis. We took hundreds and hundreds of pictures and it was much more beautiful than I remembered. Sometimes it´s just worth to climb. ;)
