Delphi to Meteora

Short and sweet entry today..

We saw the Delphi ruins this morning - I think there are more stone/marble column pieces laying around seemingly neglected than there are actual columns standing. Jazmine called it the column cemetery. We stood in a theater that is about 3000 years old; we sat on stones that ancient kings and dignitaries sat on; it was quite an experience. [Pictures will be sent in a couple of days - the carrier pigeon internet is can't handle them today :-)]

Spent 4-5 hours in the car driving to the Meteora area, site of famous cliff-dwelling monks. Found a gorgeous little bed-and-breakfast style hotel with amazing views of the cliffs and monasteries. Off to find some dinner now - and rest our poor legs for more stair climbing tomorrow...
