“In Greece everything will go faster…. The local people will soon realize the importance of accepting, feeding and providing accommodation properly. After having passed from the village of Litohoro, out ideas acted catalytically in the minds of the people• they started to realize the importance of having income, they often discuss at the marketplace, you can hear whispers among them for the great luck that a man named Chamonix had. The wildgoats hunter suddenly became the most important man of the village and soon will have his statue done, as they did for Balmat. In 1913 he used to say: “Climb on the mount Miticas? Oh…no! No man can go there, only eagles”. Today he proudly shows his visit card: Xristos Kakkalos, Mount Olympos guide. And this small detail just tells it all.” Fred. Boissonnas
