Athens - Ancient Angora

First we went to Hadrian's library.  We looked all over for books, but we did not have any luck.  We did see a lot of cute dogs.


Then we went to the below, the Temple of Hephaistos.  It was in really good shape and you could still see some statues at the top.  

Below is the Stoa of Attalos.  It had an upstairs and downstairs.  Upstairs there was a lot of pottery, some were broken, but some was in really good shape.  It was neat to see so many.



Below are the ruins of the old city.  It was really cool because we could walk all around them.


Below is the jail of Socrates.  There are 3 jail cells.  During WWII they hide antiquities in them to keep them safe.  I had a really good day and at the end of the day I got my own Greek patch.  It is really neat.
