    ... Olympic Games were held, beginning in 776 BC. There are temples to Zeus and Hera, among other structures. But the best part was the track. I'm sure Clare will have more to say about that. But it was a gorgeous day and we raced in the real Olympic stadium. Unfortunately I had just sprained my ankle two days before, but I ran regardless. And beat some Muggles. So that was cool. We ...

    ... the first Olympic running took place and we both ran it. Not many of the others on the tour did so, manly as they had difficulty walking never mind running. It was 192 meters long and there and back in the heat seemed a long way. No wonder originally they ran naked. I would have done the same but didn't want to give the old biddies a heart attack, and anyway Gill filmed it though if her filming was to her usual standard I won't actually be on the video at all....

    After ...

    ... 90 Euros the sign said. What?! We couldn't believe it! No sign previously to warn of the toll. This is $17.20 in Australian dollars for the privilege of a couple of minutes on a bridge. We dutifully paid up. Fuel is very expensive here too at around $A2.50 a litre but the car hire was not exorbitant.

    ... The track was 200m long. Somehow I dragged my out-of-shape self up and back on the track. Finally we saw the Temple of Hera built in the 7th century BC. The Hermes statue that we saw in the museum was originally in this temple.

    ... participate or observe. Oh yeah. All athletes competed naked. Which leads me to my next point. "Gymna" is the Greek word for "nude", so the English word "gymnasium" comes from Greece, meaning a place for nude workouts, basically. Interesting!

    Also, after a woman DARED to sneak in impersonating a man to see her 2 sons compete and who was revealed as a woman, even the judges had to be naked to make sure no funny stuff was going on. Curious.
