Maria took us to Ancient Olympia, home to the original Olympic Games. Olympia is impotrant for us, peace lovers, because of the stong peace message of Olympic games should have now as they had in antiquity.
At the end of our visit, they gave us a ride to Athens. They are both retired physicians and Maria is President of the Greek Affiliate of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. We joined her for a celebration of Lord Byron and for a press conference where Veterans For Peace was one of the signatories on a demand for a nuclear free Middle East.
