Day 9 – Nemea

Morning jaunt to Nemea, one of the four sites (Olympia, Isthmian, Delphic and Nemean) for the pan-Hellenic games. The Temple of Zeus, has a few columns restored and re-erected, the baths were worth visiting with their spring-fed basins and pools for the athletes, but it is the running track that is special. Used by the athletes to get from the changing area to the track, it runs for about 100 metres trough the hill and has some interesting homo-

erotic graffiti (X is handsome) and ‘I win’. We staged a mock race then returned for lu

nch to Napflion for a great lunch (chicken in lemon sauce)

and a swim.
