Just read about refugee camps setup in the abandoned 2004 Athens Olympic venues. Decided to check it out on GMaps. Quite a wide arrange of finds on the satellite images. Airport turned Olympics turned refugee camps, with a few race courses in the mix.

I’m surprised that Runway 33L still is not X’d out like 33R. It clearly is not a /full/ runway anymore, but maybe can be an emergency landing for small craft?

The ‘Reviews’ of the venues are even worth a look. Some are from the refugees themselves.

I encourage those with some time to explore it.
