Porch of the Maidens




That's me in front of the Parthenon, and you
can see some of the restoration scaffolding.
Also up there, is the Erecthium with the
porch of the maidens. These are replica
statues; the real ones are in the new Acropolis
Museum. Most of the other statues are in
the British museum in London because they
were taken there in the early 1800's. It is
still a big scandal, and the Greece govt would
love to get them back. long story...
