Imagine having public toilets in 4BC! Now very wet we had lunch, then drove to collect the netbook from Vodafone. the only way they had managed to sort out internet was to use a dongle, in which we can place a sim card.

From there it was a matter of five short miles to reach my base. I got to my hotel Mirto, at Agiou Nikolaou 5, relatively easily. Just behind the police station.
