We wondered if we would get into Athens due to recent worker unrest, but we landed on a beautiful sunny day. We had a Cruise Critic tour planned, but as we were getting ready, my stomach was telling me it wasn’t a good day to go too far. Norovirus had been present on the ship, but I wasn’t sure if that was my problem, or my decision to drink the “sacred” water the day before. Either way, I decided it wouldn’t be wise to head out on a tour, so Jim left with Kathy and Jeff and the rest of the group.
So once again, here is a Jim blog (there will be nothing but the facts...and no cat pictures!)

The Parthenon contained 100,000 tonnes of marble which was quarried several miles away.
