9:55am: Scouted the wild city in search for the Kastro, the antiquated walled stronghold of the city surrounded by modern overgrowth.
9:58am: Asked one of the natives the direction of the Kastro. She pointed right as she said “left.” This is a land of many strange customs.
10:15am: Reaching the border of Naxos town. The native spoke untrue words. Is this a trap?! Running the other way to avoid any hostile
10:25am: Reoriented myself in the proper direction. Relative direction of the Kastro is becoming clear.
10:30am: Left our camp in search for the Kastro path
10:35am: Uncovered the route and traversed the Mediterranean island relatively unscathed.
10:39am: Lost in the Naxian jungle of unmarked trails. A little free-styling is in order.
10:42am: The Kastro has been sighted up in the distance. We are headed the wrong way. Corrective procedures are underway.
10:45am: Found a trail near the water, and created our own path towards the Kastro.
10:48am: Impeded by a wall. Our kahnquestadors valiantly scaled the wall with myself at the helm prepared to fight off any native that hindered my group’s progress.
10:50am: Made our way up into the Kastro and found our way to a museum
10:58am: A friendly face awaited the band of Kahnquestadors to lead them into the holding spot of the island’s relics.
11:36am: Our friendly guide finished debriefing us of the secrets of the island’s relics. We departed in search of them.
1:00pm: Reported our finds through various documents. The relics were in some protective case. Since we could not take them back home, we had to sketch and describe the unique items we saw.
1:45pm: Our company finished lunch and reported back to camp.
8:00pm: All the Kahnquestadors took a break from working and feasted on Mexican food to remind us of our ancestral counterparts, the Conquistadors.
10:20pm: All has been a great day. My men settled in camp tidying up their belongings preparing for an early departure with the rise of the sun.
