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

 

parthenoff

 

 

 

parthenon

 

 

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

 

 

 

that CONTRAST

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

ωραίος
