More Milos

We’re leaving Milos on the Highspeeed ferry to Athen’s port of Piraeus. It’s raining heavily but the winds have died down. The picture shows what the sea looked like when we decided to postpone our departure. Our ferry rides have been too enjoyable to ruin them with an avoidable gut wrenching passage.

There was a lot to like about Milos. Low key tourism on an island of great beaches, rock formations, interesting villages and friendly people. There was more to see and do then we got around to. I guess our time went into laying around and swimming. And jumping off of rocks. That’s why there are so many bubbles in the water behind me. It has nothing to do with the fava beans we’ve been enjoying.

On to Athens for a few days before heading to Lesvos. We’re hoping to avoid the impact of the upcoming national football final. It’s between Britain and Italy. The Greeks have a plan to make the Brits travel from the airport by train while they Italians travel by bus, They’ll wear color coded bracelets to match the color coded signage. There will be undercover police traveling with them to identify the trouble makers. All so much better than the historic national fights that ended in rape, pillage, slavery and genocide. Long live the EU!

    Boy, that sea didn't look so rough. What was the Ferry like, a canoe!

    Have a great memorial day weekend, like it makes a difference there.

    Maybe now you want to turn the comment option off again?
