I had a very exciting summer vacation in Greece! If you ever go and you land in Athens, like I did, try to look out the window, because the view is beautiful!
After we got to our hotel we went out for dinner. I had Greek salad and sardines marinated in vinegar. The next day we went to the Acropolis museum. The Acropolis is an archaeological museum that holds artifacts. While visiting there you can see the Temple of Athena Nike. It is a temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena Nike.
In the evening, we went to see the changing of the guards at the Hellenic Parliament. The Greek guards are called Evzones. They looked very hot in their trousers, wooly caps, long coats, tights, and large boots that had black pom-pom looking things at the toes.
Later we went to have dinner at a Taverna, which is a small restaurant. When we sat down some local musicians came and serenaded us.
We also went to Crete, which is the largest island in Greece, surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea. We mainly stayed in the southwest, because there were not many tourists, so we had the beach almost all to ourselves. It was a fun trip and almost all the people we met were very friendly!
