We went to the Acropolis Museum yesterday and learned that we've been deceived about ancient Greek design our whole lives...but first things first. On the walk there, Rob and I stopped into the National Library. A beautiful building, even prettier on the inside. The librarian greeted us and showed us a book from the 16th century, and warned us about immigrants.
Temple of Olympian Zeus. So huge and quite dramatic with the stormy skies.
Acropolis Museum as it started to drizzle. Our Greek hosts were very proud of this new museum, opened in 2009, and justifiably so. It's very elegantly done.
"colored in" with yellow, blue, red and green. A look that seems much more similar to Chinese religious art to me. I had no idea! Mind officially blown.
