Acrocorinth is the acropolis near ancient Corinth. It is thougt to have been inhabited since the Mycenean times. Most of it today is remanents of walls and rubble. It is 600meters above sea level and on clear days you can see the sea and Salamis.
We went on Satuday the 20th, and African dust had been blowing in all day. We decided that we wanted the experience of climbing from the bottom to the top. It took a total 4 hours round trip, and we were exhausted by the time we finished. The view were great regaurdless of the dust and we saw very interesting aspects of the country life ... cute goatherders and goats having sex.
Afterwards, we decided to eat at a taverna.... but out food took forever. We were joking that they probably had to go and kill the chicken ... they did no joke. I got my chicken slouvaki and the meat was terrible and there were feathery things on it still. Needless to say, I did not eat my chicken.
