Hermes is the messenger of the gods and the guide to the dead, so he's a busy guy. If you manage to catch him on a coffee break, though, you should totally have a chat with him. He has traveled almost everywhere and has a ton of good stories to tell. You better watch your wallet, though. Hermes is easy to get along with in general, but (being the god of thieves) he's also known for finding sneaky ways of stealing anything that catches his eye.
