It's all Greek to me...
That's the closest I can get to saying
There's a little mark above the middle 'i'.
I thought it would be fun to feature one of the countries
that have readers that follow my blog!
Today I will feature Greece.

Greece is a country with ancient beginnings. It's rather a huge undertaking to really explain Greece, so I will just do some highlights!
Greek ruins in Athens
Greece is made up of a mainland and then several large islands.
Crete - southernmost significant island of Greece

In the northern part of Greece in Macedonia, we find Mount Olympus,
legendary home of the gods in Greek mythology.
Mount Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece.
It is also one of the highest mountains in Europe!
There were 12 principal gods of the ancient world of mythology.
These were known as the 'twelve Olympians'.
All of these gods were representations of some aspect of human life and nature.
