Spod Pyrgos jechalismy w strone Patry chyba na 3 raty. Przez jakis czas szlismy tez wzdluz drogi i zbieralismy melony, ktore wypadly z furgonetek. Arbuz przy upadku sie rozkwasza, a melon nie. :) Wygladalo to troche tak, jak ziemniaki na wiejskich drogach w Polsce. Zrobilismy sobie melonowa uczte;). W koncu pod wieczor zabral nas ze stoiska-furgonetki z melonami (pewnie tej, ktora pogubila owoce po drodze) jakis mechanik i zawiozl az do mostu w Rio. Dzieki temu ominelismy wielki moloch - Patre. Przeszlismy okolo 3km przez most laczacy Peloponez z ladem. Po drugiej stronie wsiedlismy w autobus, ktory zawiozl nas do pierwszego wiekszego miasteczka. Spalismy w najgorszym miejscu jak do tej pory - przy plazy, w trawach poprzeplatanych klujacymi krzakami. Poharatalam sobie cale nogi.

From near Pyrgos we had to hitchhike in 3 parts. We also walked along a road for a while and collected melons, that had been dropped off out of delivery vans. Watermelon, when dropped off, gets smashed, and melon doesn`t. :) It looked a bit like potatoes dropped off in country side roads of Poland. Therefore we had a melon regale ;). Eventually in the evening we were taken from near to a delivery van full of melons (probably the one that was dropping the fruits off on the way) by a mechanican and he took us straight to the bridge in Rio. Thank that we skipped a huge moloch - Patra. We walked about 3km through the bridge connecting Peloponnese peninsula with the land. We hopped on a bus on the other side of the bridge and it took us to the first bigger town. We slept in the worst place so far - next to a beach, among grass interlaced with stinging bushes. I wounded my legs there really badly.
