Good to have the place to yourselves, Peter
....peter:): it was around the 29th of August and the children had started school by then... that is why we had most of the place to ourselves Lisl....petersmile
I like what Lisl said...you really do have it to yourselves, Peter, or so it appears. How lucky.

You look as if you were a happy traveller Peter
....peter:): i was always a happy traveler Chris... but i don't get around much anymore...
i'm on home oxygen and find it difficult to make 500 kl trips... large airports would be impossible to get through on two tanks....petersmile

You look mischievously pleased with yourself Peter. Did you demolish the other half with your stick?
....peter:): i was very pleased to be able to see this site Chad... i don't think that my stick would harm to something that lasted for over 2 millennium....petersmile
The temple me fait penser à  la Tholos située à  Delphes en Grèce. Mais la statue de droite est bien aussi, même si c'est la première fois que je vois une statue grecque avec un chapeau. LOL! bisous pour vous 3
....peter:): ces colonnes ont été définitivement construites par les premiers Grecs Marie ... il doit y avoir une statue grecque avec un chapeau quelque part dans le monde LOL! bise de nous troissmile
They will have looked magnificent when the whole lot were standing.
....peter:): i agree Brian... these columns were at the entrance to something mush bigger that is no longer there....petersmile
Come on, peter. Stop calling yourself an old relic.
....peter:): well how about just ancient Mary... lol....petersmile
