Sounion Cape: Temple of Poseidon

We kept the hire car for a second day and, after Anna and I attended the morning ESGAR 2017 conference sessions we had a cultural afternoon self-directed session driving South towards the coast. We swam in a salt water lake that had those tiny fish that nibble at the dead skin on your feet (I couldn’t stand it and got out). The archaeological site at Sounion Cape was impressive because of its time scale: the current temple is dated to the 4th Century BC, 2400 years ago! My 38 years of life are insignificant by comparison. Vandals over prior centuries scratched their names and dated 1803… We had fun taking panoramic photos, trying to be present at both ends of the image.
