Standing majestic on a slope, dominating the area around it, lies the Parthenon in all its glory. Through the marble columns and outer walls, a golden Athena, towering at 42 feet tall (13 meters), keeps guard inside. Tourists come in droves to stare at its beauty and marvel at its odd placement in the world: Centennial Park, smack-dab in the center of Nashville, Tennessee.

Litte did I know, nine years ago, as I sat on the steps of the life-size replica of one of Greece's most prominent buildings, that I would make a journey 5600 miles away from that exact spot to admire the remnants it was duplicated from.
