Peter was in charge of breakfast and coped.

We visited the village of Maza, with its tiny but beautifully frescoed Byzantine church.   We admired a still and had the evening meal at the local taverna.   There was an enchanting puppy and the regulation cats.  

We were entertained by some Greek dancers, Yanni joined in and showed them how to do it.   I failed to get any pictures.   We slept in the coach on the way home;  thank you Yanni.
