There was a nice tail wind blowing and our route was flat for the first 12 kilometers. After that we expected to climb for the rest of the route to Olympia, but to our surprise the hills were gently rolling. Only the last two kilometers were stiffly uphill. We got into Olympia early in the afternoon, had a leisurely lunch, and found our campground. After setting up camp we walked into town and cruised the tourist shops. Belinda bought a nice blue ball cap with the Greek flag on it.
Here are pictures of our campground headquarters, camp host ( who has been running the campground for 32 years), and the camp puppy.
Tomorrow we will visit the site of the Ancient Olympics, and the two museums, one for the Ancient Olympics and one for the Modern Olympics.
