like many towns Ioannina had its pretty lake

the mosque at Ioannina ......

..... and Byzantine Museum were very interesting

the 'birthday boy' scored well

the Rio Bridge near Patra is spectacular

Our next stopover at Ioannina was chosen to celebrate 'Birthday Boy' John's new milestone and a recommended Greek 'garden' restaurant was the planned location. Rain dampened that plan so our hotel's spacious dining area was the backup. Sadly it's extensive menu ran out of steam with almost all chosen dishes unavailable. Basics got us through with a reasonable supply of wine.

With a change in weather we re-celebrated the next evening in the 'garden' as originally planned and all was well.

After a full recovery we visited the very interesting Byzantine and Silversmith Museums then next day headed out for the reasonably long drive to Olympia.
