Fun in Athens, Greece. (by Gabe Lee)
Today we visited Athens, Greece. There were three things I liked about Athens. The 1st thing was the Acropolis. The 2nd thing was a dog at the Acropolis. The 3rd thing was lunch. At the Acropolis we saw the Parthenon. It is all pretty much still standing. It was built for the goddess Athena, the goddess of wisdom. There was another temple there built for Athena and Poseidon. Poseidon was the god of the sea. At the Parthenon I met a dog that loved belly rubs. I went up to pet him and he rolled over right when I got to him. So I rubbed his belly, and when I stopped he clawed and pushed at me so I would rub him some more. So I did. Then the next time I stopped, he stayed rolled over to show me he still wanted more, so I rubbed him some more. Then I stopped again and he still stayed rolled over. I decided to stop because he probably would have kept me there awhile. After visiting the Parthenon, we went to the National Museum of Archeology, where we saw a lot of ancient Greek art. Then we had lunch at a place called Yeppo. We ate cheese and spanikopita, a Greek salad, beef over orzo (rice dish), & fruit. I thought it was very good! We had a good time in Athens, and I think it would be fun to go back again sometime!!
