Today we found the three wise men, bearing kajmak, Choco Lips and Šir. One of them gave us quite a shock. The Gods also delivered water in copious quantities today, direct from the heavens. James and I both agree, through, that rain is preferable to a head-wind. We are now snuggled up in front of a wood fire in Edessa.

The local priest was lovely, letting us camp in front of the church, use the toilet, and he even gave us a loaf of bread. Great guy!

The rain was relentless today, meaning that we stopped frequently to warm up and drink some coffee (James) and hot chocolate (me). We were showered with gifts in Arnissa – local apples and liqueur. We are receiving a warm welcome in an unfortunately wet country.

And there is nothing better than sitting in front of a wood fire after a wet day on the road. 🙂
