Delphi and Arahova. Evia
The beautiful surroundings of Ancient Delphi are shown here, a fitting backdrop to the amazing ruins.
The stark columns of the Temple of Apollo blend into the craggy mountains and look down upon the remains of the
Roman Agora. Above the Temple is a fourth century theatre. An ancient running track leads to The Sanctuary of
, a beautiful circular structure on the hillside below the Sanctuary of Apollo. Twelve kilometres from Delphi
 is the attractive ski town of Arahova on the slopes of Mt. Parnassos. I have included some pictures of the attractive
 streets and shops and some beautiful views. Lastly I have included on this page ten pictures taken at Halkida on the
 Island of Evia where the unusual changing water current is a feature. Here I was intrigued by the balloon sellers,
 and the octopus hanging out to dry at the psari-estiatorio (fish-restaurant) - check out the food for our fish lunch!
