Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Host Josh Garcia sails to Athens, Greece to explore this ancient capital city. Athens is named after Athena the Greek goddess of wisdom and courage. Dating back more than 3000 years Athens is one of the oldest cities in the world. Upon arriving he learns how traditional prayer beads have been transformed into a popular part of Greek culture known as worry beads. Called Komboloi translating to mean knots in a line these traditional prayer beads originated from knotted prayer ropes used in monasteries. Although now these are not exclusively religious they are used to ease worry or stress. Then he travels to the countryside and makes a signature Greek dish using vegetables from the land. Moussaka is an eggplant dish that originated in the Middle East and is popular in Greek cuisine. Mezze are small dishes in Greek cuisine that are meant to be shared by a group including dishes like tzatziki hummus and eggplant salad. Joshs final excursion is a once in a lifetime event as he meets an Olympian who teaches him to throw the javelin like a world class athlete. At the site of the 2004 Olympic Games Josh learns the basics of some track and field events. The Olympic Games were held every four years and in antiquity this period was used by Greeks as a unit of time measurement.
