PATRAS! The night before we were in Olympia. This morning we head for Delphi via Patras where we would take a ferry across the Gulf of Corinth.

It is another sunny day. Poh Ding & Ching Ching & I have spent too much time chatting away after dinner & are lacking in sleep. But a tour is a tour, you've got to move even if you are sick! Oh well, we were just sleepy but in happy moods.

Driving past the town of Patras wasn't too impressive... at first. Then, all of a sudden, I saw this cathedral... & I was impressed. I like the architecture. Yeah, yeah, I know, do not judge a book by its cover. But then, I like the looks no matter what you say :-p

Ok, I was the only one who rush to get off the coach & straight into the cathedral while the rest of the people are heading for their coffee stop! Goodness me, coffee?! When you've such a marvelous place right in front of you?! Get real!!! I know I'm not crazy! They are, lol...

Upon entering the cathedral... wow, wow, wow!

    It seems you know how to make others happy. Of course I mean make them happy if you take a photo of them. Besides, great pics of Aghios Andreas Cathedral!

    It is my favorite church in Greece, as I have the name of Saint Andreas, the patron saint of Patra...
