“Greece is Gods Love Affair With The Planet Earth”……. “The Egyptians had been Sun worshipers; the Greeks were inhabited by the sun.” Athens it seems is the center of the universe and it has that feel about it. The island of Santorini is a personal favorite.
Irving Stone in his historical account of the discovery of Troy and Mycenae: “The Greek Treasure” tells the story of 47 year old Henry Schliemann who married a 17 year old Greek girl and spends the remainder of his life unearthing the city of Troy and the royal tombs of Mycenae. Against all odds, Schliemann finds tremendous treasure where scholars said there wouldn’t be anything of worth – – and yet, despite his successes, he continually confronts challenges from governments and academicians that undermine his work.
