Thursday was our first full day in Athens and our goal was to see a lot of the major sights. First we took the metro to the Acropolis. After seeing the Hagia Sofia it is easy to not be as impressed, but I had to remind myself that this was a major undertaking that took place in the 5th century BC. We then set forth on a walking tour in our guide book. Interestingly enough on our first stop outside of the parliament building there was a major protest. From what I can piece together it had to do with austerity cuts. We finished our tour and had dinner at a nice local restaurant.
