Vergina to Alexandropolis
we rode 250 miles or so along the Odos Egnatia and stopped 45 miles from the border. We are staying in a cheap portside hotel which seems clean enough. It has good air conditioning and our room is quiet. It did have at least one mosquito but Ashley killed it.
It was a long, hot ride with no real breaks though the scenery was dramatic in parts. We passed a town called Drama but didn't stop to take photos. Ashley did very well riding into town and getting his head around the chaos driving here.
This town is fairly crazy. At around 10 everyone comes out of their houses and eats souvlaki at a restaurant. It gets smelly and smoky and loud. We enjoyed this for a while then came back to the hotel with beer and water to drink and relax for a while. Tomorrow we attempt to cross the border and we are aiming to make a good distance on the Turkish side.
