== Hitching out ==
Do NOT take the old national road that swings north over the lake. No one uses that road. Though there is a bus for 5 euro to the next town East where you can keep hitching. Take the IKEA bus (free) from the center, and get off at the crossroads of the ignatia (highway), Hitch on the on-ramp.
===East towards Albania, Gjirokaster, Tirana===
Take the airport bus from the center (#2) and get off at the airport. There is a traffic light and a bus station where people slow down and have tone of place to pull over. You can see many Albanian driver plates and hitching without a sign can be done as there is no other town in between the border and Ioannina.
On the North-East side of town there is a school, a running track, and a jet-ski/watersports area. In this general area there are many potential sleeping locations. Nearer to the water and the white tower for the water sports area is a nice grassy location. There is also a water source there.
