Alex adds: Many of these pictures are from inside the Parthenon, where we managed to get special access. You can see much of the elaborate reconstruction/preservation project ongoing as we're dodging the booms of cranes and swing of hammers amidst newly hewn marble and orders barked in Greek. Perhaps the feel of it wasn't too much different than when this temple was first built 2500 year earlier. But this time, the reconstruction will probably take at least 50 years, while the original project, without modern machinery (and without union labor) took 15 years.

Ancient Legos?
