This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
The Greek Agora was the main public meeting place in Ancient Athens. From about 1000 BC, Greek citizens would come to this area to hear statements from the King or ruling council.
The Agora was also a marketplace. Kind of the shopping mall of the time, where you could go to get the latest toga or shop for olive oil. The philosopher Diogenes once lived in a barrel in the Agora - as part of his anti-materialist philosophy. Despite Diogenes advice that excessive and unnecessary consumer goods do not make people happy, most people in the Agora ignored his wise words and the fires of commerce burned bright.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
