Easter time

These days of Easter I was in holidays in Peloponnese. The place where I come from is in Arcadia, centre of Peloponnese, in the mountains. The mountains should be mentioned again because it was so cold!!! We almost had Christmas instead of Easter… The first day it was snowing but thankfully the other days had decent weather to go around.

The first day we went in ancient Olympia where the archeological site of ancient olympic games took place. It was magnificent and very inspiring. The site has 3 sections: the stadium, the sanctuary and the facilities for athletes and travelers. All of these ruins are in an enchanting environment, as you can see in the photos below.

Another day we were fearless and went to explore an abandoned old hospital near our village. It has the rumour that is occupied by ghosts and people are very afraid of it! To tell you the truth, after my visit there I understood why they believe something like that! Apart from that it is a beautiful building, in the mountains, which could be renovated and be something great. If the ghosts allow that…

Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me and I couldn’t take very nice photos but I think I succeded to transfer the atmosphere there and some of our activities! Except food, which was one of the main activities…but I can’t even watch food right now!
