Day 6: Delphi and Athens Again

The grounds at Delphi, which we saw at a distance from below, are amazing once we get on site. Elena tells us a bit about the history and mythology of the place, about Apollo as god of light and wisdom. Hmm, I wonder who this could be foreshadowing?

After exploring the grounds we go inside to the museum as well.

Part Sphinx, part Griffin
Impressive friezes

Afterwards we get back on the bus to return to Athens, with just enough time to say a warm goodbye to Elena – our tour guide for the cruise portion of the trip will be Christiana – and put ourselves together for our optional (fancier) dinner out at the marina.

Then it’s back to The Stanley to repack, get some rest, and regroup for our departure to the cruise ship tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers!
