slept:7.0 (rest day)
Transition day. Van transfer first to Tripoli where the others were fitted for bikes, and then up into the mountains to Vytina, where we assembled our bikes and pretty soon it was time for dinner. The bikes take about an hour each to assemble (and of course an hour each to disassemble at the end). Lovely to have them once we are riding, but I'm not sure I am up for transporting them again on some future trip.
Dinner was pleasant, getting to know the other riders, a congenial bunch. Turns out that one of them (from Denver) knows Jonathan, our daughter Jess's husband and his parents and siblings.
So dinner. Spanakopita, olive tapenade to spread on tasty bread, some really excellent orzo and mushrooms, excellent salad with tasty local lettuce, balsamic and feta, beef with mashed potatoes, and a yogurt and honey dessert with pistachios. Fine, but we are still wanting fish!
