Home of the Olypmics

Riding to the town of Olympia I came across some great scenery.

Now as much as I hate bus loads of tourist. There is something even worse to ruin the tranquility of a historic site. Bus loads of grade school kids!!!!!!! Damn those things just run around screaming and yelling. I know you are not interested in the historic significance of the site. 
You just want the day off.
 Go home and goggle it kids if you really want to learn and stay away from my sites!!!

The statue/Temple of Zeus is one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. It no longer exists but is portrayed in the above picture. Actually the only ancient wonder that still stands today is the Great Pyramid of Giza.

These carvings were found above the entrance into the Temple of Zeus.

They are still excavating the Olympic site to this day.

This the archway through which the athletes would enter the stadium area. I will admit it was pretty great feeling to be standing on such a historic site. 
Screaming kids or not.

Olympic Stadium.
