  1. The Ruins of ancient Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympic Games in Greece

  2. Olympia, Greece
    Took about 30 minutes. I keyed in on what looked like a hippodrome.

  3. Olympia, Greece, with the stadium in the center of the photo.

  4. Olympia, Greece, the location of the original Olympic games.

  5. Sanctuary of Olympia, Greece

    When I first saw this yesterday I was thinking somewhere around the Mediterranean area, due to the tree groves (I was assuming olives, but not totally certain), what looked to be some archaeological site, though hard to discern and nothing really standing out, and the area overall appeared somewhat dry.

    Today, I was going to start looking in earnest in Italy and go from there, but then I remembered the ‘theme’ from last weeks contest and on a whim just typed “olympic torch” in the GE search box… and… dagnabit! – NOW I’ve got to wait another 6 days for the next contest! Ah well.

  6. Question: I truly hope I’m not being presumptuous in asking, but if we had some suggestions for new contests, how might we submit them to you for your consideration? Is there some email address where we could send them? I couldn’t see any link on the webpage…. maybe to see who is too presumptuous enough to even ask? 🙂

  7. Olympic Stadium, Olympia, Greece

  8. Ancient Olympia, Greece

    Tricky this time, as it took me a while to guess what recent event had inspired you. Thought you’d already done the olympics. Nice one, though 🙂

  9. Temple of Zeus, Greece. 37°38’18.17″N, 21°37’47.06″E

  10. Olympia, Greece. Temple of Hera, where the Olympic torch is lit by the rays of the sun. Home of the “ancient” Olympic Games.
