Olympic Flame, Olympia, Greece

Since I was a kid I have loved the ancient Greek history so this card is just awesome for me. It shows the lighting of the Olympic Flame in Olympia right in front of the remains of the temple to the goddess Hera. It is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror. The first Olympic Games ever were held in honour of the Greek god Zeus.
This card was sent to me by Sofia for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
