Maria Gergoudis Benaki museum and Oloi Mazi Mporoume Concert

Today began with our usual Greek class, where we practiced ordering food at a ταβέρνα and then headed to a culture seminar. This afternoon we toured the Benaki museum, which is especially unique since it combines ancient treasures as well as more recent artifacts. My favorite parts of the day were dinner on the rooftop of the museum, as well as a concert we attended in the Panathenaic stadium. Sitting in the stadium listening to Greek music with thousands of other people and the Acropolis in the distance was a beautiful sight, and a few of us enjoyed some ice cream as well– the perfect end to a full day.
