Vathy, the capital of Ithaca, the legendary home of Odysseus - lots of solar water fittings. Lovely place too!

We slept on the sofas and awoke (Sept 15th) as we wended our way between Ithaca and the mainland, heading for Patra on the Peloponnese. We had a rendezvous with granddaughters on the Ionian islands (hence the trip), but the ferries had stopped running directly to the islands as the season was over, hence going via Patra
Bill : early morning at Milan station on way to Brindisi. We'd arrived on the sleeper from Paris and been treated to a most welcome espresso and pastry by Sylvain whom we'd met and spent the night with (in the 6 berth compartment!) We stretched our legs walking round the front of the station just before sunrise and I actually saw a rabbit dart between bushes and railings!
