Natalie Cernius – Acropolis Museum and Parthenon Visit

Today was my first time going to the Acropolis. As amazing as it was seeing the beautiful views from the very top, and thinking about what an effort it must have taken to build such an incredible place, my greatest reflection came while I was staring out the bus window on the way back to campus.

It hit me that in the distance, behind the pop culture ads I saw and the people taking selfies on the streets, the Parthenon stands in full view. To me, this is one of the most telling things about Greece: even in all its modernity, there is such a constant and impactful reminder of its great past.
