For a good portion of my first ever IAP, I explored ancient sites in Greece with 19 other MIT students and a trio of professors from the MIT History Department and Concourse program. Here are some pictures I took.

Day 1: Acropolis




the distant blue is ocean but if they could put more cool buildings out there they probably would


not the stata ampitheater but close


a grand ol' flag


better than the boston skyline from our side of the charles? you decide


actually my phone background


Cats on a Hot Tin(Metal) Roof



Day 2: The Agora and various areas in Athens

people added for size comparison


in case you were hungry for more columns


that thing on the hill looks familiar


I bought crepes near here!


somewhere between athens and delphi


an instagram pic that would definitely have some fake deep caption like "not all who wander are lost"



Day 3: Delphi

F  O  G (and also the rain threatened my camera so I didn't take many pics here :/ )


Itea, home of great fish



Day 4: Olympia

I was actually surprised at how disassembled a lot of things were here


the og stadium


a sampling of horses and other quadrupeds (note: these were in every museum. I took pictures of them but thought posting them all would be annoying. take my word for it.)



Day 5: Epidaurus and Nafplio


this was in nafplio and I just thought it looked pretty so enjoy


a view from palamidi




the great wall of nauplion




did my photography skills glo up or did I just get a new phone


MIT kids spotted in an unnatural habitat


get u a peninsula that can do both


this one is scratch and sniff



Day 6: Mycenae and Corinth

scary lions over the entrance


could you imagine maintaining an orchard with walking distance of mycenae


more spooky fog


sadly no "apostle paul was here" graffiti in corinth


wow I can't believe those columns are holding up clouds



Day 7: Athens (once more)

fortunately there was panathinaikos graffiti in athens


a sentimental view from the roof of a hotel prior to departure
