Day Three Hundred Fourteen

Greece GR-16430 received 02-22-2011

Sent by: enyalios
From: Greece
ID number: GR-16430
Notes: As I have mentioned before, I am a big fan of the Olympics, which is probably why enyalios sent this card to me.  This stadium in Athens, Greece, also known as Panathenaic Stadium, is where the modern Olympics began in 1896.  It was reconstructed entirely in marble from the remains of the remains of an ancient Stadium.  It was also used for the archery competition and the end of the marathon for the 2004 Olympic Games. I can't imagine that sitting on marble for any period of time would be very comfortable!
