Wandering the Agora

Athens_Agora Tortoise

When we were wandering around the Agora (the old marketplace and civic center) in Athens, not far from the Acropolis, we came across this tortoise. He was meandering between the ruins, calmly ignoring the tourists. He obviously thought the dandelions were more interesting!

  1. That’s so neat. We just don’t see much wildlife around here unless you go for a hike out in the desert. But even then I’ve only seen a few lizards. He’s an interesting looking fella.

  2. It’s not something we expected to see during our wanders.

  3. Definitely not something one would expect to see. :)
