The Road to Delphi

Today Daniel drove.  He is not like me.  I did not want the terror of driving a European-layout-left-hand-drive hire car out of downtown Athens.  I navigated, thanking Google maps for the free GPS provided by a pre-downloaded route and wifi-location.  We headed North, weaving onto and falling off a busy highway.  We made our way around to Orchomenos, to see a monastery and ruins of a tholos tomb. We stopped in Leivadia and walked up through the old town, following the waterfalls, and had lunch.  It was overcast when we arrived in Delphi but the sun poked out from between the clouds for photos.  We ate mulberries from a tree just downhill of the Stadium, and our hands were stained red.  Now begins the long drive home.
