about this story

While Anna was booking her tickets to Greece, she was so happy that she could finally go. Even when the ticket was 1,200 dollars, she didn't care. She was in love with Greek mythology and wanted to see the Temple of Zeus in Olympia. Some of her favorite Greek gods were Zeus, Athena, Poseidon, and Aphrodite. She loved the way writers made them sound in books. Of course, she knew they weren't real. But, Anna loved Greece and it's culture, that she couldn't help but look into the history. When she looked into the history of the Greek culture, she found out about the Greek gods and she couldn't help but get attached to the culture.

The next week, when she was on the plane to take off. She was so ecstatic, she tried to calm herself down so she wouldn't get kicked off the plane. The plane ride was 16 hours long, to get to Athens. When Anna arrived, she wanted to do everything immediately. But, she knew that she should go to her hotel first. She grabbed her bag and started walking to her hotel. It wasn't far and the streets were lit constantly, she had a feeling she would be okay. Once Anna got to the hotel, she was so exhausted from the plane ride, she didn't notice the beautiful scenery in the distance.

The next day, she woke up at 10 am. 2 hours after she planned to. She quickly got dressed and went onto the streets of Athens. It was gorgeous and she went to get breakfast first. When she was done eating, at 11:30. She was walking down an alley, which had blue walls. She found a rose sitting on the sidewalk, she probably shouldn't have taken it put she did anyways. It could've been for someone special to another person. She put the rose into her bag and went to go get lunch. It was about nearly 2:15 pm. She went to a popular restaurant in the area.

After eating, she went to a park and it was getting darker. There was a lot of people around and she was confused. Anna didn't know why so many people were in one place, at the same time. Then she heard a bang. She quickly turned her attention to the trees in front of her, she thought it was a gun. But, they were fireworks, in front of the moon that was shining in the sky. It made it look white, since Anna loved to do photography in her free time. She grabbed the camera that was hanging around her neck and when the next firework was shot. She took a picture when it focused, she missed it a few times, but finally got the perfect one.

When she arrived to her hotel, she finally noticed the scenery. This morning she was too rushed to get to the streets, that she didn't bother to look. Anna looked down to the waves and thought about her going swimming tomorrow. She sat on the porch of her hotel balcony and watched the stars. Anna decided she wanted to take another picture of the sky and the ocean together. Since the ocean looked like a mix of light and dark blue. Her camera, ran out of film.
