ancient olympia

this is where the track and field was held. It was massive, and according to the description,  45,000 people could attend to watch.
 Photo of the whole dig site. It was huge! My poor feet.
 Our first glimps of the area, it was very exciting. Below is where they light the olympic flame is lit. It will be happening again soon for the London Olympics!

Your pics seem to have a blur tinge...is it your camera or the atmosphere there? You can see how ancient the place is. Lots of history. Thanks Maa
