…is Patras in Greece.

There is a website but is a bit short of info. I signed up for the weekly newsletter last November and have not received anything yet. Some of the links return blanks, the pdf download has an incorrect format so won’t open. The list of events looks interesting but there’s no venue information yet even for the Da Vinci exhibition that opens on the 10th Jan.
The Greek language version looks a little bit better but not much.
Perhaps they’re all still trying to get these little wooden houses off their heads. I hope we can all dress up in silly outfits like that in 2008!
