March 25 Parade in Athens

I looked over my blog for the past month and realized that there were almost no pictures.  March 25th seemed like a good day to fix that.  I took part of the morning off (only part!) and checked out the military parade through downtown Athens.  We weren’t in an ideal place for photographs, but I did click off a few that are more or less presentable.

Parades are great.  I love trucks although the ones with the big guns were a bit scary.  The biggest applause was for the Evzones and especially the firefighters who worked so hard this past summer.

If the pictures aren’t your style, I did do a proper blog post for the day here.

    The great thing about blogs is that you can discuss some highly intellectual topic one day, then show lots of photos and talk about how cool big trucks are the next. Keep up the good work!
    P.S. I’m a little jealous of your extended stay in greece.
