Excerpt from Message

My cousin and I have spent many an hour here at the Acropolis reliving the glorious days of ancient Greece We saw the play “Agamemnon” at the Theatre of Dionysis where it was first performed. Wouldn’t it me impressive to your histoy class to conduct the lecture at this very spot as teachers can do here. We feel like 2nd graders deciphering the Greek [illegible] letter by letter.
