"Where did they all come from?" I asked Lulu. Standing at the base of the Acropolis in Athens, we were suddenly surrounded by dozens of absolutely gorgeous young women elegantly dressed like they were going to a very special cocktail party. We watched them struggle with their spiked heels on the uneven, rough stone steps. It was just a bit after ten in the morning.

Lulu shrugged as she dodged a cameraman. Photographers abounded, and the young ladies smiled and posed. It was then we remembered the Miss Universe Contest was being held in Athens that year.

The Greeks never had it so good.
