1st stop.....Olympia, Greece

We sailed for an entire day before arriving at Katakolon, Greece on December 18th. A bus drove us to Olympia for a bit of history....
Entering the ancient Olympic stadium...
Inside the stadium...
Did you know that all of the athletes competing in the games here were naked?....Interesting!

The remains of the Temple of Zeus is located very close to the stadium....
We learned that sticks are very important to 2 year olds:)
After touring the area (a LOT to see), we rode the bus back to a little
Greek restaurant to taste some traditional food, drinks (minus the Coke) and dance!
Lauren and Sarah went down to join the dances...
Lemon trees were everywhere....
The next port was not far away!
