Photo of the Day: A Tribute to Greece in Hokkaido

Photo source: Dan Leung 

 The Parthenon Snow Sculpture
built to celebrate the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens 

When Konstantina F (Greece)  sent this to me, 
it also reminded me of my second favourite building in Athens,
the Academy of Athens, one of the three Athenian Trilogy buildings.
Built by Theofil Hansen, it was also modelled on the monuments of the Acropolis. 

Of course, it gave me a good excuse to post that photo too... 
Check out how similar the buildings are! 

Greece is the word around the world!
