This will be uploaded after the fact because I cant get an Internet connection here and will have to wait.
Its nine in the morning and I am sitting on my balcony of the Castri Hotel, which although basic at €55 a night has probably one of the most amazing views Ive seen. From here I can see right across the Gulf of Corinth to the Pelopenese. It is very quiet here, much more than you would expect from such a famous site.
Yesterday we walked up to the Sanctuary of Apollo, where in ancient times the Oracle of Delphi ( or Pythia) gave out her riddles. Of couse this had a price so anyone who came had to bring amazing gifts which were kept in treasuries all over the hill. The museum has some of the ones that have been found, such as a life-size bull made out of silver and a bronze charioteer. The stadium behind the site is the best preserved in Greece.
The fact is the Pythia was probably sat over a fissure in the ground through which gas escaped, making her just a bit 'high'!
We have to drive back towards Athens today and then across the Corinth Canal until we get to our next stop. The seaside town of Nafplio.
The old man who runs this hotel has lived in more than thirty cities across the world during his work with NATO, but sitting here now you can see why he would want to come back!
