It's five minutes to five. Our train has just entered the station of Thessaloniki. Four hours late, though the other passengers just say "oh yeah, this train is always late"! And the other trains to get to Athens? They are on strike. Then our adventure on a Greek trains stops there. It's a shame, because the train is nice, with nicer scenery than going down the highway with the other twelve thousand cars. There is a night train which takes 6 hours and costs about 30 euros. During the day, the fast train takes four hours and six hours for the slow. The difference is the price, it is 50 euros for the fast and 15 for the slow.
