|The Greek Hero, "Ajax"|

No one seemed to know a thing about it, till we came across two old fishermen, and one of them had rented his donkeys to the team who were doing the excavations. We forged on. Vasili winced as I drove "Haourla"(Little Joy", in Greek), who is our Nissan Note and was new at the time, along the deeply rutted and partially washed out dirt roads.
After finding a place to safely park "Haroula", we continued on on foot. We were walking up and up a tree covered mountain path, but weren't finding anything that looked like a dig. Then I saw a small symbol on a tree which showed that we were actually on a mountain bike path.
Sadly, we agreed to give up and turn around and go back. When we did, we saw on the slope opposite us, the site of the Palace of Ajax! It was a wonderful moment for both of us.
