Aegean Sea (right) and Bay of Corinth (left) as seen from Akrokorinth42 viewsThe view from the Corinthian Acropolis is beautiful on all sides. There is a very narrow canal near Corinth that goes between the Bay of Corinth and the Aegean Sea. I don't think you can see it in this photo.mudmine
National Archaeology Museum in Athens61 viewsThis is as far as we got. On the way back from Santorini we had a layover of several hours in Athens, so we decided to take the train into town and go to this museum, which we'd missed earlier and heard was great. By the time we got there, though, we realized we'd only have about fifteen minutes, max, to tour it before heading back to the airport. So we decided to spend our euros on coffee and ice cream instead. We snapped a photo in front of the museum and left.mudmine

Red Sonja69 viewsJust to be clear, Sonja Salih is *NOT* named after the comic book character Red Sonja, "She-Devil with a Sword," played by Brigitte Nielsen in a 1985 movie. Sure, that movie had a huge impact on a lot of us, but it wasn't the inspiration for Sonja's name. mudmine

View from the temple35 viewsLooking down over the decorated tiles of the roof gives you an idea of the precipitous heights.mudmine
House on Cat Ba32 viewsThe hiking trail emptied us out onto a street with a small cafe, where we could rest in the shade a bit and get something to drink. Opposite the cafe was this small house, showing the typical arrangement of Vietnamese houses: an open living area on the ground floor, with sleeping areas at the back or upstairs.mudmine
