Last weekend we made a three night trip to Thessaloniki, about 5 1/2 hours north of Athens by car. Our purposes were simple, to visit a church in the area and give an update about God’s work among refugees in Athens. We also had the opportunity to visit some of the sites of Macedonia (the northern Greek region, not the former Yugoslavian republic). It was a great adventure. Here are some pics:
The tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great – An earthquake concealed the entrance soon after his burial, thus hiding the tomb from grave robbers. Consequently, it is one of the best preserved examples of Macedonian royal tombs.
