A View at Kerameikos
My beloved ancient site in Athens
Ever since I was hanging out in a motorcycle repair shop next door to
it, the archaeological site of Kerameikos
was my beloved ancient place in Athens. It's not just old stones, it's a
garden in itself. Like the very best of the ancient places, it has a
special atmosphere to it.
Last Sunday I had planned to visit it again.
Somewhere in my memory I had stored that entrance to archeological sites
in Athens is free on Sundays. Well, it is, but only in the winter
season. Right now it's the full 12 Euro - a bit hefty, even if you
consider that the ticket is valid for many archeological sites all over
Athens. So I was cheap and didn't go, I had a walk around Acropolis
instead (which led to me discovering the parrot on my way home
through the national garden, another story).
Back to Kerameikos, on Tuesday I passed by it, and I snapped a few
pictures from the outside through the fence. Here is one result of them,
also available in

And with an interest in digital life and the feeling of change in a big city.
