I have just booked my tickets to Edinburgh, will have a week there, and are
planning a side trip to Greece for 5 days or so.

Please give me some pointers on what not to miss. I will be traveling with
my daughter and her husband, she is finishing up her Masters in Political
Science (Public Admin) at the Univ. of Edinburgh, and Lathen is a graphics
design artist. So, where better than Greece for a potter, a politician, an=
graphics guy to go?!

We plan 2 days in Athens, then we are open to suggestions - maybe Delphi an=

Scotland is totally open for wherever we want to go.

Dear Robin,
While in Edinburgh there is a great historical ceramics collection in
the museum there.
It is organized chronologically reflecting the developments in ceramics.

Robin, I would try to include a trip to Rhodes. AT Knossos there were some
increadible 5+ feet high storage jars that I have never forgotten. I know
there have been some earthquakes since I was there 30 some years ago with
some damage so check out the area 1st. I belive there was also a museum
nearby. Liz Gowen
