And we have hit the end. Today was our last full day in Greece, nevertheless exciting as all the rest.
We explored all over Athens. We hit all different tourist attractions, like typical Americans. Those places being the Acropolis, Areopagus Hill, the ancient neighborhood Plaka, and the highest point in Athens. The Acropolis was filled with tons of ancient wonders, and it was a very humbling experience to see all the extravagant architecture. Areopagus (Mars) Hill was another place that really astonished us because we read about it earlier this morning in Acts 17:16-34. (Check it out!) At the Hill we took some time to look out at the city, and just reflect. It was awesome to see a place where Paul preached like we did this week. The Plaka was very exciting. It was filled with Greek culture and constant bargains. We all stocked up on our souvenirs and headed over to the highest point in Athens. Now listen, to get to this place you have to walk A LOT. So we climbed all the way up, looked around, and then . . . Walked all the way back down. Our feet burned by the end of the day. All in all, it was amazing to see Athens today!
God really did a good job with this city. See y’all soon!
I love Athens! I have not been to Aeropagus Hill but I am planning on it when I go next. Great information. Thanks for sharing!
