athens, acropolis, greeceI had originally thought I’d write a multi-post series on our Thanksgiving trip to Athens, but it turns out our three-day visit wasn’t quite enough time to get an in-depth experience worthy of my usual writing.athens, greece, parliament, changing of the guardsChanging of the guards outside Parliament.Sure, we visited the Acropolis, hiked up Mount Lycabettus and took a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.
