    I hate Donald Duck. Donald Duck should be shot by Elmer Fudd during rabbit season and dressed out on an instructional Youtube video for millennials, with no warning about graphic material. I wouldn't listen to a word Donald Duck says.

    You never saw Donald in Mathemagic Land? It's the only reason I know anything about math at all. They covered geometry by calculating the angles of bank shots on a pool table. But it was released in 1959, and math is racist, sexist and homophobic...so I probably require some time in a reeducation camp.

    Is that the Temple of Hephaestus? Basically, the temple of arts and crafts... Never made it over there but it would be something nice, and not too expensive.

    I asked how the were able to cut all that stone and the guide said with chisels. If you look at the massive blocks it looks like they were cut with a high-powered saw. I just can't see a chisel being that precise. I'm going with the alien theory personally.

    If you look carefully you can see another structure with columns in the picture that sits below the acropolis.

    Athens Visited the Acropolis. Acropolis simply means city at the top of the mountain (acro = top) (polis = city). There are many Acropoli (?) in Greece but this is most famous. After a steep climb. This is the parthenon which sits at the top of the hill. Massive. Probably the most impressive thing was what you didn't see. Apparently within the parthenon, there was a 40-foot gold statue of Athena. Can you image that! It was taken down and melted years after but just the thought of that great statue inside the columns is breathtaking. The guide mentioned that if the columns were perpendicular they wouldn't look straight at a distance. So the Romans used the mathematical constant "phi". Phi for “Neo-Phi-tes:” Phi ( Φ = 1.618033988749895… ), most often pronounced fi like “fly,” is simply an irrational number like pi ( p = 3.14159265358979… ), but one with many unusual mathematical properties. Unlike pi, which is a transcendental number, phi is the solution to a quadratic equation. By using this constant the columns appear perfectly straight from a distance. Amazing. Have no idea what any of that means but just wow. The Parthenon is a former temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron. Construction began in 447 BC when the Athenian Empire was at the peak of its power. Wikipedia

    My Sharona. Please tell me you pronounced it "jī-rō", just to screw with them. Seriously though, that looks like it was a fun trip.

    Mykonos Another beautiful sleepy little island. Enjoyed a real gyro at a little restaurant by the water. It was so much better than the gyros I've had here.

    :-) I'm not sure the Mediterranean ever gets really rough for a big ship. The newer ships have stabilizers nowadays that really smooth things out, anyway, particularly on the ocean liners. I've been on several cruises in various waters and if I ever felt more than a brief gentle rocking, I can't remember it. NY or Boston to Southampton might be a challenge, or the Caribbean during hurricane season ... I get seasick in a heartbeat anytime I'm outside the jetties in a small-to-mid-sized boat, but I've never had a problem on a cruise ship.

    ...and speaking of rugby, if I want to watch a game where there is no strategy beyond running straight ahead into a wall of people in 2 yard increments until you give up and punt, I can watch the Jayhawks play football for a lot less hassle. Tickets are basically free.

    The first morning, I threw open the shades to reveal the image above. Conversation: Wife: "Close the shades." BC: "Why?" Wife: "They can see us." BC: "You mean the dolphins?" Wife: "No, people." BC: "What people?" Wife: "The people on the ship." BC: "What ship?" Wife: "That ship." BC: "You mean the island?" Wife: "Yes." BC: "So you think there are people on that distant island with a Hubble telescope trained on our room?" Wife: "Yes." BC: While closing the shades, "Ok."
