Athens. October, 2011

Even as a little kid, the Erechtheion was always my favorite building of the Acropolis. I liked that the columns were ladies. The porch of the caryatids. And so it was a real thrill to finally visit. The Parthenon, sure, mighty impressive. And copied in Nashville and evoked in so many other neoclassical buildings around the world. But where else do they have maidens holding up the place?
