Olympia - Olympics & Olive Oils
Today we spent the morning and lunch time in Olympia, Greece. After breakfast, we visited a local producer of olive oils. We participated in an olive oil brief introduction and tasting session. Students used toothpicks and small prices of bread to taste the wide array of olive oils produced throughout Greece!
We spent the latter half of the morning until 2pm exploring the original Olympic stadium and the ancient Olympic Village. After learning about the history of the area and quite a bit more Greek Mythology, we were able to walk throughout the site, run on the original Olympic track, and marvel at the ruins of the temple of Zeus.
After our tour of the Olympic Village and Stadium, we toured the museum (where the students found ore wifi ;-) and we ate lunch at a delightful little outdoor Greek restaurant before loading the bus to travel on to Patras. This is our last day in Greece, and we will spend tonight on a ferry boat on international waters. So Goodbye Greece!! It's been fun, but Italy here we come!!!
