I only have four pictures to show you (of which two are not mine), so I will not provide you with the usual historical resume. Here are the photos.

In 1966 I had business reasons to visit Cairo, Damascus and Ankara so I took vacation days and added Athens, Beirut, Tehran and Istanbul at my expense.
Here is a postcard picture of Herod's Theatre on the slope of the acropolis. It is much better than the one I took on the same spot in 2003. People make all the difference!
And here is the temple of Vulcan that I visited with Klemens K. a charming Greek girl that was staying at my hotel
Klemens and I before Vulcan's temple.
And the Acropolis seen from the gardens around Vulcan's temple.
