As the night went on, the antics became wilder and louder. Ithakis older generation began to go home to bed while Ithakis young, left their respective Bars in the low lands to make their way up to the Panighiri. Hundreds of souvlaki consumed and who knows how many litres of beer, wine and spirits to bring the Exoghi Panighiri to a close in the early hours of the morning. Those that weren't in the bushes, passed out or blurry-eyed, left Exoghi mountain with the sun beginning to rise and the sky over Ithaki, made pink by dawn.
The Exoghi organization was again right on the money, so hats off to the village community who made it such a great event again. See you in Exoghi again next year!
