Archaeological Site of Olympia Greece, 1988

Being the geek I am I had to go visit Olympia, birthplace and site of the ancient Olympic games, which, by the way were conducted by men entirely naked (and women were excluded). Ah, the good old days.

It's hard to not think of what it was like in 700 BC when it all started. Amazingly enough you can still see the starting line on the track for the running events.

Also see Greece.
