Another casual day in Athens strolling about, fighting jet lag.  We visited the National Museum, Temple of Zeus, 1896 Olympic Stadium, the Parliament & Gardens, and capped the day off with live Greek music and outdoor dining next to the Roman forum (above).

Since we were heading to Santorini (Thera) next, and later Crete, I especially wanted to visit the National Museum to see the Minoan pieces that came from the ruins at Akrotiri, Thera.  One favorite piece is pictured (right) and dates to approximately 1600 BC.
