Superb welcome for convoy in Thessaloniki, Greece.
It's day 7 and we've completed the first leg of our journey to Gaza. We have arrived in Thessaloniki, Greece. Convoy traveling together for the first time as we enter Thessa for reception with Mayor.Thessaloniki, (also known as Salonika or Saloniki,) has given Greece some of its greatest musicians, artists, poets and thinkers.
Staying the night in a sports centre while the Mayor of Thessaloniki welcomes the convoy with media coverage. Covered 500km today and a few motor casualties.
The whole convoy is being paraded under police escort. Greeks are very helpful and supportive of the convoy. Public stopping us and offering money
