After that it was all uphill the rest of the morning, but the wildflowers and the quiet road made it bearable.
As mentioned in a previous post, we are taking pictures of roadside shrines. Most of these pictures will be on the climbs, since we fly down the hills around 30 miles an hour or more. The shrine of the day (best one of many good ones) is in a classic Greek setting with a mountain, a small village and an olive grove.
As we got closer to Napflio there were Mycenean ruins near the road. Here is a bridge circa 1500 B.C.
We were on a large road for over 1/2 the day. Traffic on this main road was fairly heavy due to the impending Easter holiday. We were pleasantly surprised by the courteousness of the truck drivers. We even had a couple of encouraging honks from passenger vehicles. One fellow on a motor scooter slowed way down next to us to give a big grin and thumbs up before roaring off with a wave. We found a pension in the old part of Napflio and got the last room (the attic) from which we have a splendid view of the old Venetian fort.
After some good food and sleep tonight, we head down the coast tomorrow to Paralio.
