Day 5

Yesterday we went to the sight of the first Olympics in Olympia. We ran across the Olympic track in which we raced. Hoke got first but Charlie miraculously got a close second with flip flops on. Though the sight was in ruins, there were still some parts we could make out in our imaginations. A reconstructed pillar showed the impressiveness of the temple of Zeus, which is actually a wonder of the ancient world.
Next we went onto Tolo, a small beach town. There we stopped for lunch at a really good restaurant and arrived at our hotel which has a magnificent view of the water and requires you to walk on the beach in order to get inside. From there we swam in the frigid, Crystal clear waters and played a water volleyball tournament match. After that we had a short visit to Napflio for dinner and went to bed after that.



Day 3

We woke up this morning and had a delicious breakfast. It was at the hotel and consisted of bread, meats, cheese, peaches, croissants, and much more. After breakfast, we went to the place where the battle of Thermopylae took place. There we saw many interesting statues and watched a 3d movie of the battle.

Then we went to a natural hot spring. As soon as we arrived there we were engulfed by the smell of sulfur which smells rotten eggs. After the spring we had lunch and then went to the famous Delphi oracle. In ancient times, people from all over the world came to Greece just to use the oracle to solve their biggest problems or conflicts. After the oracle, we returned to Delphi, had dinner, and then returned to the hotel.

Day 1 from GreeceĀ 

Hey from France! We’re about to land from a seven and a half hour flight to Paris. We flew on a 747, and not the most comfortable chairs in the world. Most everybody slept and if we weren’t sleeping we watched movies, read, ate, and played games on the tv on the back of the chair In front of you. Lily Reckford listened to some 1D and slept almost the whole time, Margaret Bethel read and played video games, Mr. Anthony read, slept, and watched a movie very closely, and Max Creasman watched the fantastic film of “Dumb and Dumber To” and slept. I’m sure that everyone else did something also, but I don’t know.
