Zombie Kitty Kawaii! And PhatKat's Continuing Adventures In Greece...

... in which they visit the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the Acropolis Museum and get nearly ripped up by one very sensitive and commentary by MomKaterina. Read on, dear readers, read on:

"Zombie Kitty goes to Athens, Greece and visits the Acropolis, sees the Parthenon and visits the Acropolis Museum. She also went with her friend PhatKat and MomKaterina. 'Spent the weekend in cold, grey Athens, chilly winter!
Zombie Kitty arrived on Saturday morning, and stayed at a hotel near the train station in Athens":

"And then went and hunted up the Acropolis, the Rock...high up where the Parthenon can be seen. Katerina happily took both Zombie Kitty and PhatKat along the way to the the Odeon, below the Parthenon":
The Parthenon marble is being cleaned and repaired, so there is scaffolding and a crane or two.

 ZKK is nearing the Odeon and with PhatKat they can just barely see the west end of the Parthenon.
 "No photos were allowed with the cats up at the archaeological site nor in the museum. The Greek guards are very sensitive and do NOT allow "fun" or "mocking" photos we had to sneak a pic or two."

 "To the Acropolis museum to see the sculptures and a view of the Parthenon high on the third floor! The guard rushed to Zombie Kitty and forbid any photos inside with "the cat" :-("

But this one with the view of the Parthenon was done before the guard came. 
 "Now, inside the Acropolis Museum are the famous sculptures of the pediments, but they are white plaster copies , as the originals are still in the British Museum in know: "The Elgin Marbles".
The white plaster makes these sculptures look like "ghosts"...waiting for the real ones to return.

"There are painted-like-old-marble full size plaster copies also at the subway/Metro station and that is where Zombie Kitty and PhatKat were able to pose with the "ancient" Greek art."

"The metro stations also have on exhibit the archaeological items that were found while digging to make the Metro underground. Zombie Kitty liked these amphoras.":

"Back home, Delfini Dolphin chats with Zombie Kitty and PhatKat as they tell their tales of their weekend trip to Athens.":

"Now time for some shut-eye, and in a day or two, a visit to the sights of Thessaloniki, Greece."

And so ends one very exciting trip to Athens for Zombie Kitty Kawaii!, PhatKat and their guide, MomKaterina! Fantastic! Good to hear that they didn't end up in tiny little paper pieces and that MomKaterina is really good at explaining to the museum guards why she was carrying around two cardboard cats in her pouch bag ("Printed Matter...perfectly harmless..." as she says!).
I say, you all deserve a few days rest...but we do look forward to your next adventures, of course!
