Taking a Picture in Greece

We were a little bewildered when Mark held up Starcase Sandy for a photo in front of the Parthenon and got a whistle blown at him by a guard. It turns out you can’t hold up an icon (like this doll) in front of a monument – even if for educational reasons. It was explained to us as disrespectful. It was a head scratcher for us. We never once read this rule anywhere or heard about it. Interesting. I doubt most of our 3.5 readers will be carrying a paper doll anyways so it may not matter. Maybe we were censored for good reason: transporting a paper doll over international borders is just plain odd isn’t it?
