Corinth and Mycenae

Corinth: Not a whole lot had changed at the site since my previous visit in 2004, except that more parts of the site are roped off. We did get to see another part of the museum. Lots of interesting stuff in the museum sections making it worth one's time to look around. There is a nice little area on the site that they have set aside that is convenient for conducting an informal worship service as we did. One does have a take an unmarked walk down to the area where the Erastus inscription is. (It was rather overgrown with weeds, and it was helpful that our guide knew where to find it.) I still have never made it up to the Acrocorinth. Next time...
Mycenae does not really have a biblical connection, but it is a fascinating site. Apparently, already by Roman times, its ruins were a tourist attraction. 
HERE are the pics.
