Dimitsana is another mountain top town, which sits at the top of two hills (2789 feet) at the beginning of the Lousios Gorge. There are plenty of trails to go hiking around the area, but it was too rainy. Luckily the bed and breakfast listed in my travel guide had vacancies so we didn't have to look too hard. The first thing we did was put our wet cold clothes out to dry and make some hot coffee.
Dry and warm again I set out to take some pictures of the town.
Since it was still quite drizzly, I walked around taking pictures
out from under my umbrella. I loved the way the clouds
drifted around the mountainsides.
Sunday morning we confirmed that the bus doesn't come to
Dimitsana on the weekends either. We stopped in a cafe for
breakfast and asked if they could order us a taxi. An hour
later we were on the road to Monopoli. The drive was most
enjoyable. The driver stopped along the way to let us take pictures
and told us about the history of the area. We talked about our family and
he told us about his. From Monopoli we got on a couple more buses
until we arrived in Tolo that evening.
