Thank you for your nice words! Athens is indeed a great city and I believe you won't be disappointed when you visit it! My sentiments on the new museum are positive too. This project is a very important one for our city, building this new and modern museum that will house these precious antiquities is certainly a plus and most importantly the new museum will allow our country to pursue its quest of having the Parthenon marbles returned home where they belong!

I feel the same about Athens at MPJK does. It looks like an amazing city, and I've love to see the Pantheon marbles returned.

Plus I could eat Greek food for the next 100 years and never get sick of it.

It is 100% that you will not sick not cause it is tastefull but really healthy...
we are the heaviest smokers in Europe,we are the most enterainment living..we eating allways after 9 oclock at night....we have more kilos than the average...and we havent the healthiest way of living....
but as a nation we have one of the highest average period of life in men and women....what scientictis tell about this paradox??....
greek cuisine(olive oil,vegetables,healthy way of cooking)

as for the new museum
is already open the first floor for a special exibition ...until the end of March 2008
they present the ancient toys and games have been found during the excavations for the New Acropolis museum structure....
HERE are some of the finds in the ground under the base on the New Museum
this is one of the room of the house in the basement that will be visible and acessable by the visitors of the museum


an ancient toy

a key of the ancient houses

an ancient toy

the ancient way of lighting the house

as you realize it will be a whole excavation part of the ancient Athens from the prehistoric years until the early Byzantines,aceesable by the visitors of the museum in the basement....structured in a special way to be full of sunlight and presented in the best way for the best possible acessibility from the visitor....

that's true..but i think he was referring more to some mainstream kind of unhealthier cuisine of Greece such as gyros..etc..although thinking about it nothing is really unhealthy even the mainstream stuff such as the greek salad..are very healthy..hmm however souvlakis are not i believe

you believe wrong..cause souvlakis have grilled meat...healthier way to cook the meat
Tzatziki...(olive oil,yochurt,garlic) the triple of the healthiest ingredients
Tomato
and greek Pita...just virgin ingredients with lots of olive oil ....
no butter not fry....
full of calories but not unhealthy ones....
is this the topic of New Acropolis Museum or am I wrong???

The President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Karolos Papoulias, visited yesterday the "Wonder that highlights Greece, Athens and Culture", the New Acropolis Museum.



"It is a landmark, a sign of hellenic history and culture but also of our demand for those who are not able to understand how importand it is for the stolen treasures to return home, to their birthplace of creation and to get lighted by the Attik Sun."



President of the New Acropolis Museum Construction Organisation Prof. D. Pantermalis who accompanied Mr. Papoulias at the guided tour, stressed the necessity of the reunification of the Parthenon Marbles: "Where they should get reunited, in the British Museum or under the Attik Sun, next to the Holy Rock of the Acropolis, is to be decided by the international community"

Mr. Papoulias was very interested in the proposal of a friendly meeting with Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France for a discussion about the Frieze and the Metope that are in Louvre Museum. The idea is not only to get a copy of them but also to get the originals themselves back. "But our first priority are the Parthenon Marbles"
