Ancient Olympia

As the world has turned its attention to London for the 2012 Olympics, I think it is a pretty good time to share with you some images from Ancient Olympia, the place where the Olympic Games were held in Ancient Greece.

We were there on the 3rd of August.  Despite the extreme August heat this place continues to inspire calm -- no wonder the ancients used to gather there for the games.
