I feel sorry about E and H because P and S are not real fans of ‘stones’, so we normally pass very quickly through these ‘obliged’ visits that show the very past history. Even quicker when the day is as warm as the days we had in Athens or Delphi. In the end E and H are also not real fans, but maybe with different parents…
But, what we do like about these ‘stones’ is that they are placed at very special places. For instance the Poseidon Temple at Sounion Cape: from this place you can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset with great views over the sea.
For me it’s also a pity that they took away the nicest parts of these ruins to keep them in museums. In the museum the pieces does not tell that much without the surrounding and the nature, so both the pieces and the ‘stones’ lose a big part of its sense. I know it’s probably necessary to keep everything in the best way, but even though…
Here some pictures of very old ‘stones’ (800-300 before Christ, more or less…)
