Well, I know very little about Greek History, and only a little bit about Greek Mythology, but I LOVED walking around Delphi for nearly 6 hours today. Joe is now sleeping it off, but he walked every step too. The site is just incredible, going back thousands of years, and the museum has good models showing you what the place looked like in its glory day.

The site is not huge, though there is a fair amount of up and down, so there was a lot of sit down and soak it in time. Sobering to think how entire cultures and regimes were destroyed and essentially disappeared.
