Greece / Thessaloniki
Hi just a short update:

Entered Greece and spent the night in Alexandpoulis (check spelling) which is 40km from the border.
Got up early again and left by 6am to Thessaloniki, I had intended to ride further but I had to stop and get my rear brake pads replaced. They were almost worn down to the metal. While I was at it I had the oil filter replaced and changed the oil. All these jobs should be the last till I finish. Also brought some more chain lube as I finished my can yesterday. Whole lot came to 120 Euro!! (XXXXXX) Was going to replace front brake pads at the same time but they should last out ok, I'll keep my eye on them.
As I write It has started pouring with rain bloody unusual sight, first on my trip apart from a quick but intense downpour in India. I think I will go and jump in the puddles!!
Still heading west
