Today Mycenae was on our program - the centre of Greek civilisation in the 2nd millennium BC! I was looking forward to visit the famous Lion Gate and the Cyclopean Walls of this incredibly old town.

If Olympia makes you think of the 5 interlocking rings and endless hours in front of the TV, I can tell you there is much more in regard of the history of this games. The sanctuary where the games were carried out in Antiquity lay under 4 m of soil before it was uncovered again in the 19th century.
As we crashed our "cochecito" into a balcony and caused some damage on the box we needed to repair the critical part of the skin.
In Kalamata we found a shop for motor boats which could provide the materials we looked for.
