What creative crowded lives the Ancient Greeks seemed to lead. And in 2019 the signs state with certainty the dates of every event. All of which reinforces the perspective of time compression and longevity. How much of today’s infrastructure will be around in 2500 years to be admired and catalogued?
All of which is to say the ruins at Delphi are stunning in scale, detail and timespan. Apollo must be happy, though he probably predicted it.
Equally impressive are the insects Manning whoopee in the spring flowers and sunshine, particularly the purple thistles. The town of Delphi is ticking over before the main season rush. There’s not much info on the olive valley below the city, stretching down to Corinth Bay, with the occasional glimpse of an irrigation canal.
So batteries charged, is back up the hills tomorrow!
