A great shot - even with the scaffolding!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth - you can't escape the scaffolding!

Time to return the Elgin Marbles, Tom
Tom Wilson: Well, there's a new museum at the base of the acropolis, partly built in the hope that they would be returned - but I think it unlikely!

Let's hope they can afford to keep doing this Tom!
Tom Wilson: I imagine work has now stopped for the duration!
The story of Greece right now, Tom?
Tom Wilson: They certainly need repairs, Ginnie!
A wonderful image Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard - it's a wonderful site!

Needs a bit of renovation if it is to get a 5star hotel accreditation, Tom.

[athough I would be happy to erect my hiking tent under it right now...]
Tom Wilson: They're a bit short of reaching that standard!
If the ancient builders could see this now...
Tom Wilson: They'd probably be amazed that it had lasted as long.
There are some things that austerity can't touch
Tom Wilson: This was from some years back, Bill - I imagine repairs have ground to a halt - unless it is Euro money!
Beautiful capture and presentation of this stark and mighty structure.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary.

I have been there in 2004 and they were at it, back then. Seems to me they need more euro's to complete the job.
Tom Wilson: A lot more, I think, Louis!
Yes an ongoing process which seems to be in good hands. I like the glimpse of Athens and the sea
Tom Wilson: They've got years of work left I think!
Be nice when it's finished....
