Mario had the first week of March off from school (ski break), but rather than heading somewhere cold our family headed towards the sun in Athens, Greece. Athens is the capital of Greece, and is at the heart of Ancient Greece. Our first day in Athens, we went to the 5th-century BC landmark, the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings. Mario loved exploring the remains of the ancient buildings and running through the hilltop with his stick ropes. We all loved the sun and experiencing one of the world's oldest cities together - Athens has a recorded history spanning over 3,400 years!
