Out and about in Athens

Today we did a lot of things. 

First we went to the flea market. We took the Metro to the market. The train station was very nice. It was very clean and not very crowded.  

When we got to the market Nazeriah and I saw a person who would put our names in Greek one a neckless or bracelet. But at the same time, Chayton had to go to the bathroom. Luckily my mom said that Nazeriah and I could look at the stand while Chayton and my dad went to the bathroom. At the stand you could get an name for 6 euros. Nazeriah and I got our name done In a necklace. My name in greek is spelled Kaia. 

      
Then we went to Hadrian's Library. It was an all purpose kind of building. They used it for a theatre,a meeting room and a library. It was very big, but if you think about it the section for the actually library is kind of small. It was still very big if everything was together. Here  are some pics.
 


Next we went to Ancient Agora. We got to see the Stoa of Attalos. It is a big building that is kind of like the Panthnon, but bigger and longer. 


After that we saw the Temple of Hephaistos. I can't really explain it very well, but I can tell you that it was very beautiful. 


Finally we started to walk home, but we stopped at a restaurant called Chocolate.  We ordered a plate with 4 hamburgers, 4 grilled chicken pieces, mozzarella sticks, and 4 egg rolls. It tasted so good. Then we got back on are way to home again. We got home and my mom started to make dinner. I was tired so I just read.
