Today, we did some sightseeing in Athens. Among some of the places we went were the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, and the Panathenaic Stadium. While we marveled at the magnificent structures and architecture, we also admired ancient Greeks for their wisdom and civilization as they advocated new conceptions of democracy and justice. During lunch, the group settled in a restaurant near the Agora and ate some of the excellent local cuisine. In the evening, we boarded a plane to Thessaloniki, where we will stay for the remaining days of the trip.
We'll have pictures and more reflections from students soon! Tomorrow, our conference at Anatolia College begins. Very excited for our students to represent Iran, Greece, and France in their respective committees.
