The Parthenon

While in Nashville this weekend, we did manage to get in some educational time.  We took off Saturday morning and toured the replica of the Parthenon.  It is in Centennial Park in downtown Nashville.  Here are some shots from the Parthenon and from hanging out at the park.  Mouseover on each picture will tell you about it.

Those columns were huge!!
