Areopagus (Mars Hill)

Partway climbing the Acropolis, Ningning asked if Athens was mentioned in scripture. We researched and saw Paul’s famous Christian sermon was given on top of Areopagus.

New York, NY

Second stop was to visit friends in NYC. Enjoyed eating all the non-traditional cuisine – Chinese, Thai, Korean. There is a new park built on an unused elevated rail line – Highline Park – which we thoroughly enjoyed cruising. The photo gallery tells the story. Be sure to watch in HD and full screen.
