the mainland around the port in Pirias is not really a tourist destination, just a jump off point for the ferries to the islands.

VERY strange way of marching.

It is so hot in those heavy costumes, that the soldier comes to wipe their face & neck with a cool towel and even has to put the cup to their lips, so they can take a drink. The guard is NOT to move a muscle, just continue to stare.

Our last night in Athens, we had tea at our usual spot, but this time Bob had picked up the only bottle of wine he could find larger than a 300ml. THAT was a waste of time. 1lt 'plastic' bottle for the equivelant of $2-.  YUK!!!!

our new friend and owner/manager of Crepe Xarchia came to our rescue with a couple of bottles of lovely wine. It was also great that he spent the rest of the night chatting with us.

We call him Illia, (i think that is his last night, but we remember that name from the days of Ilia Kuriakin in Man from Uncle.
