The field is measured in 600 stadia with one stadia equal to the measure of a size 12 foot, legend being that was the size of the foot of Hercules who was the hero of the ancient games. The original stadium is a grass oval with upward sloping sides where the spectators sat on the grass similar to the Circus Maximus in Rome. Originally, only foot races were the competitive sport with chariot racing and wrestling added later on.
Here is my video of the Zorba dancing which I took:
When they stopped dancing, the music continued and people were grabbed from the audience as a long line of dancers was formed, weaving in and out of the tables as well as in and out the doors of the taverna. It was so much fun!!!
I hope you enjoyed taking the trip along with Lulu and me.
