Changing of the Guard (Athens, Greece)

10.19.2012- The changing of the guard in Athens is a tourists’ highlight–mainly because of the ornate outfits and pom-pomed shoes they are required to wear.  All of the guards are specifically picked based upon a number of characteristics, including their height.  It’s amusing to watch more than anything else, but the slow, distinct steps (or high-kicks) that they have so synched with one another are definitely worth a look.
