After visiting Dodona, we spent the rest of the day in Ioannina.

First stop was at the archaeological museum in Ioannina. I don't usually take pictures in museums, but these were unusual pots. The left one reminded me of a 3-neck round-bottom flask I used to use in the chemistry lab.

There's a small village on the island in the lake. We took a ferry to and from the island to visit Ali Pasha's summer compound and have lunch at a taverna.
After lunch, we returned to Ioannina and visited the old section of town and the acropolis.
The former stables in the acropolis is now a small but lovely Silversmithing Museum. We now have a much better appreciation for the silver filagree plate that Lon has.
Fetiche Mosque in the acropolis. Ali Pasha's tomb is the iron-work structure in front of it.

While we were waiting for our bus to take us to our hotel, I watched these Great Crested Grebes on the lake. The one on the right looked pretty scruffy -- then I realized it had a baby on its back.
