TJ Samson - Olympia - April 13,14

Olympia was the site of the first Olympic games in honor of the Greek god Zeus. Since then, this small town has become a tourist haven for the games connoisseurs and Greek mythology enthusiasts. The main road is filled with tiny souvenir shops and restaurants all leading up to the ancient ruin site. This site holds the Temple of Zeus, where the Olympic torch is light, and the Great Chariot field. At the Chariot field we fashioned our own Olympic games. We had several relay races and it truly felt like we were in the Olympics. The fellow tourists were all surrounding the field cheering us on.
