Greece Day 3

On Day 3 I hiked this:
It was beautiful. We spent the morning prayer walking over Athens. We partnered up and prayed from the Metro station all the way to the top of the hill. Athens has 6 million residents and only 4,000 claim the Christian faith. Please pray with us for this city, rich in biblical history but blind to the true Light of the World.

Here are a few shots of the climb:

At the top of the stairs, about to start hiking switchbacks
A view of the city from the bottom of the hill

Let the real climb begin!
View from the top: The Acropolis (zoomed in a lot)

The breathtaking city of Athens
There was a chapel at the top and you could light candles for loved ones. I thought this was a neat shot.
Just to prove I actually made it to the top. Even though it took me awhile (many thanks to my patient prayer partner, Seth.) And yes, I am showing some Rush of Fools love with the t-shirt!

Thanks for your comments but in one thing you are wrong, the vast majority of Athenians (like the vast majority of Greeks) are christians and more specifically Orthodox Christians.
Simple facts that you can check in every major encyclopedia/book.
