Dawn breaks over the sea
looking down from Olympus
Journal Entry 17

12:51 PM
Olympus, dawn to dusk

Here in the sun, gazing down Olympus to Litichoro and the sea far below, gazing down the same paths Far-Seeing Zeus gazed down from his throne. After six hours of hiking from the parking lot at Prionia, through occasional 2.5 foot deep snow drifts, I am in love with this mountain. The winds and the air and the sunlight all are simply amazing.

And here I sit, my offering to Zeus beside me, knowing that I need to offer for his favour. The weather is only part of it. There is also the fact that cortigiana nor I fell and died.

Now, it's six hours down, so it's time to offer and head back down.

  First snow encounter | How deep is it? | It's Mazi-crotch deep!

      Vampire goats! | See him staring? | A bird at the shelter
We saw some wildlife, and even a Yeti! I swear!

Throne from the shelterhouse | View down from the shelterhouse | View to Litichoro and the sea
This is what far-seeing Zeus sees from his throne. . .

Make sure you check on sidestep.com for any flight needs, they are what Travelocity used to be for finding deals and if you create an account you can check within a few days of the dates you enter.

Yeah, that amount would be up through mid-September (5 * 900 + 450 - 600 = check). I'm pretty sure PayPal would charge you a fee for that and I'd rather not pay a fee on top. :)

Whatever you do is what you have to do. I'm just hoping the house is in decent shape by the time rolls around just in case.

Well, as I am commenting from the future! (it is past 1 AM on the 17th here) I am going to bed. That and I have used just about every icon I have.

Have a nice rest of your day. Try to write me or something.

Yeah, I realized on my way to lunch that PayPal would totally charge a fee. Stupid PayPal. *shakes fist*

I was wondering if you were shooting for all icons or not :) I am very appreciative of your work in that direction!

However the house is, I'm sure that Maggie and I will be in awe of the awesomeness that is Mazi's house. After all, my journals from Greece prove your awesomeness.
