The Acropolis

The name of the first track is Hi Life (Ed Did It) by Monkey Safari.  i cant find a copy of the track anywhere on the internet, but its a great song.

Greece.  The home of philosophy as we know it.  Where reason is the leader towards truth, or as far as we can come to understanding this reality.  Even after thousands of years of evolutionary changes in the landscape, the ruins of the temple created for Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, still stands.  Maybe only in pieces, but the mountain itself where communities of thinkers congregated together to discuss ideas still peaks high over the surrounding city.

The colors of this place are blue, white and gold.  It's dry and hot, dusty and sweaty.  Lavendar, sage line around the gardens and orange, olive, and pomagranite trees line the streets.  The town is not a city, but more of a maze, with winding roads and walkways that snake their way between old buildings.  People are friendly and rude, giving and needy, happy and sad.  

Once again many ideas have come and gone, and yet another "favorite place" has been added to the list.
