Acropolis Now

The things that surprised me the most about the acropolis were that I could see the sea, that I would never see the real acropolis unimpeded by cranes and scaffolding, and that the city of modern Athens literally floods out in all directions engulfing everything in it's path. I've been told that Lycabetus hill used to be inhabited only by wolves. Today those wolves have been reduced to licensed street dogs.
