A red sun sinks rapidly into the Aegean and we head back up Mt. Pilio before it's dark and those curves become any more surprising.
In the morning at 7, packed and ready to head back to Athens,the house is quiet and there are no signs of staff. Hate to forgo one last breakfast, but with 5-6 hours of driving ahead, we need to get on the road. I leave a note on the table and a tip in my room and begin the struggle with luggage back down the stone path to the main street below. We wind our way down the twisting road for the final time. After a quick stop in Volos for an egg and ham pastry and a cup of Greek coffee strong enough to bend steel, we thread our way through town and onto the National Road to Hamia and Athens.
Wiser and braver now from the trip here, the road back is a breeze and we make Athens in 5 hours without incident and drop off the rent-a-car. Bella shops the Duty Free while I wait at the gate. They announce a gate change. Boarding time arrives and no Bella. I have her paged and turn around to see her standing behind me.
