   Why Should You Go?
You should come to Greece because
of…EVERYTHING! The people of Greece
are so nice. They will welcome you with
a big smile. Another reason you should
come is because of the land. There are
so many mountains. To be exact 80% of
Greece is covered by them. One more
thing, if you do come here you could go
and visit the Temple of Parthenon.
Remember it was built in 447-432 B.C so
don’t destroy it…please!
