We had breakfast in a little sandwich bar round the corner from our hotel. The owner was pleased to serve us and I had their first ever cup of tea with milk! After that Ed got his hair cut while I wandered around and took in Greece's second city.
We're starting to learn the Greek alphabet now and can almost read the place names on the first signs before the English ones appear, so we headed off towards Drama for lunch, but we don't want to make a big thing about it! Very good food from a lady with an infectious laugh.
Spent the day dodging storms, but we got caught by the edge of one and it started sleeting which took us back to Croatia (it looked like that old starfield screensaver from windows 3.1 for a while) but thankfully it passed.
Alexandroupoli tonight, just shy of the Turkish border. We found a good hotel quite easily but had much more trouble finding a restaurant later. There seems to be nothing but kebab shops and bars here (sounds very English) and the restaurant we eventually found is just a kebab shop in disguise, with the very proud Nick The Greek working the coals and introducing himself as we arrived. Good food though and we had a drink on the way home.
