Shipping News... and Party in Patras

How I spent New Years Eve
Patras Harbour

We were in Patras to party into 2007 with my ex-flatmate Haralambos. He and his gang had rented a cafeteria and transfered it into a bar for the night. We danced and partied and got to sleep at about 7:30 in the morning. I seem to be at a party whenever I go to Patras. (Remember how we went there for the carnival?)

We went home by train, which was easy and relaxed. The train is a bit slower than the bus, but the bus terminal in Athens is a bit outside town, so we have to take another bus to get to Omonia square and from there the train/metro home. The train station in Athens is easier, with direct access to the metro system.

Still in Patras, while we waited for our train, we took a little stroll around the harbour area (which is right next to the train station). It seems that due to New Year, a lot of the big ferry boats weren't travelling, there was a meeting of the sleeping elephants. The view was phantastic in the evening light, so I snapped two panoramas, giving you here the bigger (and better) of them. As usual, click on the image for a bigger view. There were far more of the huge ferryboats, but they didn't fit all on one picture, even a panorama!
