      The hike to the Olympia mountains were anticipated and was soon materialised. Or not? The evening was spend wandering narrow streets and window shopping. The next day was a big day. Already ordered a taxi recommended to me by the receptionist, a nice and helpful chap. It was supposed to be a very early start. the cab was ordered for 5am, early enough to secure myself enough time to safely cover the distance to the summit and back. Things did not ...
