Some night shots of Athens when I went downtown for the full moon festivities on the 9th of August. Most of the archaeological sites and museums were open and entrance was free. There was a huge crowd below the Acropolis enjoying the music and checking out the ancient artifacts and admiring the August full moon.

Hmmmm something is cooking in outer space. I wonder what this Grannie is concocting…
Χμμμ κάτι μαγειρεύει στο διάστημα. Aναρωτιέμαι τι ετοιμάζει η Γιαγιά …
I don’t know what these flowers are called, but they sure do love my camera.
Δεν ξέρω πως λέγονται αυτά τα λουλούδια, αλλά σίγουρα αγαπούν τη φωτογραφική μηχανή μου.
I taught Angelo to take some time out from his busy schedule to smell the flowers. Well, they’re not as fresh, but it’s still cute to see a cat do something so human.
This lucky little lady bug
has landed here to stay
To make my garden pretty
and keep the weeds away.
This beautiful, tall flower is perfect for weddings.
Αυτό το όμορφο, ψηλό λουλούδι είναι ιδανικό για γάμους.

Thank goodness the garbage strike is over. Bad timing with the awful heat wave. A very unhygenic combination.
Ευτυχώς, η απεργία των σκουπιδιών τελείωσε. Κακή χρονική στιγμή με το φοβερό κύμα καύσωνα. Μια πολύ ανθυγιεινές συνδυασμός.
What’s a city without a little music? The notes drown out the cacophony of urban life.
The ‘Venus de Milo’ at Louvre Museum in France was discovered in 1820 on the Greek island of Milos.
I know, if Aphrodite spoke she would not be speaking in English, or French for that matter. But, I’m sure she would picked up a few foreign words here and there from all those years of being at the Louvre and listening to the tourists speak.
The strange thing about this post is that at the time that I came up with the idea I didn’t know that there is an actual campaign in Greece, specifically by the residents of the island of Milos, to bring the statue back to the island. So weird! Maybe it’s a sign that it will return? It doesn’t seem to likely since it has been at the Louvre for such a long time. But, if it does happen it would be an extraordinary event to see the removal and return of the statue however you may feel about it.
