Fantastic pics of urbanity there, thanks mate!

Interesting to note in the Acropolis buildings the slow restoration of the ruins. Thanks to the onset of 3D printing tech they're now able to carve out precise anatomical shapes to fill in the gaps (much was destroyed when the Venetians bombed the complex). They've purposely been using a different type of marble to differentiate the old and new. This also allows them to rebuild structures without falling out with the preservation camp.
