Day Three - The Streets of Corinth

Where to begin...
Today started with a drive to the Corinthian Canal. Construction on this canal began in the 1880's. Many had tried before but no one was successful. Nobel's invention made it possible. It is quite a view. 

Then we drove to the Acrocorinth for a hike to the top. This is the highest Acropolis in Greece. The scenery and vistas are breathtaking. 

We had a great lunch followed by a tour of ancient Corinth with our amazing guide Eleni. Corinth was the city in which Paul spent 18 months as a tent maker and proclaimed the Gospel to the citizens. Corinth is also the city to which Paul wrote at least three times - much of these letters are included in 1 and 2 Corinthians. Paul defended his message at the bema of Gallio. We celebrated the Lord's Supper under the shade of pine trees and the shadow of the Acrocorinth. 

After our drive back to Athens and some time to shop in the Plaka, we had an incredible dinner with this rooftop view (don't hate us because it's beautiful)...

Tomorrow is another full day. We will be touring the city of Athens. 

Thank you for your prayers. 

Blessings to you.
