Athens, A Place of Wishing Wells and Magic Spells: Ish Meets Greece

While walking around the Acropolis complex in Greece, I found my way to the Acropolis museum where the entire entrance to the building features an extensive display of underground excavations. The walk up to the entrance is composed of transparent corridors where various levels of excavations can be seen. The picture above is a well in the center of one such excavation that was left open and surrounded by walkways. It always makes me wonder why people all over the world are compelled to throw coins into open wells and make wishes. 🙂
