Over April Break, some Belfast Area High School students participated in a large EF student tour of Athens and the Greek Islands organized by our French teacher Ms. Ogden. We spent four days in and around Athens and visited the Acropolis, Hadrian's Arch, Olympic Stadium, changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown, as well as Delphi and the Temple of Poseidon. Then it was a four day cruise to the islands of Greece including Mykonos and its winding streets and windmills, Samos and the Temple of Hera and the birthplace of Pythagorus, the island of Patmos, Rhodes and its colossus and the blue-domed white buildings of the island of Santorini perched atop the rim of a huge caldera. The group photo is at Heraklion, Crete southernmost geographical point of Europe. Greek language, food, customs and dance were all sampled. We found Greece to be vibrant, passionate and friendly. It was a great trip and a wonderful opportunity for these Belfast students to see and experience this part of the world. Thank you Ms. Ogden for organizing this visit.
