Museums a-go-go!

1 Comment

Went to the Market this morning and am now the proud joint owner of enough vegetables and fruit to sink a small battle ship (it would have to be a very small and crappy battle ship as cherries aren’t recognised as an offical weapon of war). So at least I’m being fed for the next few days.

Then we went to the National Archaeological Museum. I love that place…so much to see. Lots of vases including lots of cases on Boeotian pottery, with one devoted to Kabeiric ware. That one is right at the end of gallery, I get the distinct impression they didn’t know quite where to put it so bunged it in at the end. Then we had a mooch around the other galleries.

Afterwards we went to the Epigraphic museum, its right next door to the national but its always deserted. It does have some amazing inscriptions including the tribute lists from Athens, on of which is nearly 15 ft high. The lettering is less than an inch or two in height and the whole thing is covered. Very cool.

Then I went shopping…hurrah I have carrier bags full of things!

Now I’m in the library having finished the first draft of the article I’m working on and fancied a break from book things.

Plus I watching a few interesting, non-painful patches of sunburn starting to develop…bugger, and I had sun tan lotion on too…

  1. Watch out for that sun, lady! It’s gloomy and wet around here.
    Have lots of fun. I look forward to reading about your adventures. And say hi to your travel mates.
