What is a trip to Athens without seeing the Parthenon?
What is our entire civilization without the Acropolis?
What is the point of coming to Greece if I don’t get to see where everything began?
These are the questions running through my head as I try to convince myself to hike up the Acropolis under this heat. The sun is shining too mightily for us mere mortals.
To make myself worthy of the gods, it is but right to first get a new ‘do.
(or to find an excuse to delay the agony)
Hopefully my new look will please the gods.
My oh my oh my,
mapapaluhod ako sa mga diyos sa ganda!
Now I understand why I needed to suffer under the scorching heat.
It’s the gods way of saying “you are not worthy.”
Even with the ongoing renovation and restoration, I can still imagine its glorious past.
Aaaaah to be a goddess in those days.
Earth to Jazel!
Kailangan ng magkatawang tao muli at iyapak ang mga paa sa lupa.
Since this is also my last day, I wanted to continue walking the ancient streets of Athens.
Discovered this shop that is full of character (pati yung tindera karakter!)
It looked like the place was stuck in time.
Everything here is authentic and handmade.
In the evening, I met a local who took me around his motorbike (feeling dyosa!)
Tried a local drink in a pub, watched a concert at a bar and saw the whole of Athens at night from the top of a hill.
It truly was a spectacular view.
Sas Ef̱charistó̱ Athens,
for making me experience what is it like to be a goddess.
