We sleep till about 10:30. We have breakfast at Kostas’ place: the restaurant is called O Pelaïsos. It is raining, so we won’t be doing a lot today. At least that’s the plan, not too much action. In the afternoon we sit down on a table at Vassilis and play cards. We also have something small to eat and drink a Greek beer (Mythos). Today is really doing nothing, because we can’t even go outside. The benefit in Greece is: it is not cold when it rains. It still is warm, even for this time of the year. And we don’t need to go to work, that’s another nice thing. Later in the afternoon the clouds disappear and the sun comes checking out the world. We want to go and explore the town and also check out what’s available in the environment. When we’re back at the hotel we’re very lucky: we have just entered the hotel and there is a very hard shower coming down from heaven. Then we prepare ourselves to go out for an evening to Perdika. Vassilis has invited us to go out to eat in a restaurant in another village: Perdika. Vassilis has his origin in this town and knows about everyone. We drive by car at 21:30 – Vassilis is driving – to Perdika. We are treated like kings. Everything is ready to make it a nice evening. There is a tables overloaded with Greek salad, cheese saganaki, squid, chorta and several other dishes. Everyone chooses fish as a main course, except Patrick; he takes pork meat. The fish is unbelievably good. We have seen in the kitchen, what they were going to serve us. All fish was lying in a freezer on ice, so it must have been fresh fish. We eat very much and drink a lot of local white wine with it. After this perfect meal we’re not yet leaving Perdika, but go a little bit further to a bar for a drink. The women take amaretto and the guys have a tasty whiskey. It starts to get late and at about three in the night we leave Perdika. Christine and Vassilis go into town, because it’s not yet late enough, but we go home to sleep. Sleep tight.
