This is Sister Ollerton, Elder and Sister Bell and Elder and Sister Andros in front of the National Archaeological Museum. It is considered one of the best museums in the world. (It has some really old stuff) We spent 4 or 5 hours there and only saw about 1/4 of the displays. We have to go back. It was a great P-Day and we had a great experience.

The following group of pictures are of a city on the Peloponnese. Its name is Nafplio. It became the capital of Greece in 1821 when the Greeks drove the Ottoman forces (Turkey) from their country after a 1000 year conquest. There is a large Fortress on a hill behind the city that was built in the 1700's and so it is relativly new. You can climb up to the fortress from the city along a stairpath with 999 steps, or you can drive around to the back and walk in. It is a beautiful city with a lot of history.
