The third island we visited, was an island called Skiathos. In Skiathos we chilled out, went to the beaches, and did some school work. We did take one big hike that was long and hilly. When we reached the top of the big hill we got to a monastery. There we met people who were helping to restore a church and they offered for us to stay and have lunch with them. We had yummy cheese pies. They made the pies in a traditional wood-burning stove. I thought it was nice to have lunch with the locals.
Then we went to Delphi, or otherwise known as the belly button of the world. Yes, the belly button of the world! It is called that because when the god Zeus wanted to find the center of the world, he released two eagles, one from each end of the earth. The eagles met at Delphi, so he said it was the center of the world. Where the two eagles met, they built a temple for an oracle, who is a person that can tell the future and speak to the gods in the heavens. The people on earth would come to the oracle and ask questions about important stuff and the oracle would tell them the answer. So it was a very special place. Tyler and I tried to predict the future, so we'll see what happens!
From there, we went to one of the most amazing places in Greece. It is where the first Olympic games were held in ancient Olympia. There we saw the first track ever used, which we even got to run on.
