My Visit To Greece: The Ancient Country Part II

Greece is a country full of beauty and tons of history.  I learned a lot about the country’s history and culture during my week last month visiting this country.  I would like to share some pictures with you, particularly on some of the sites I mention in my previous post.  The picture above picture is the Acropolis Temple lit up at night.
