I am now in Ios. The party
Oh! Let me tell you about my hotel.
After realizing that I had walked to where all the local hotel buses were parked, and there wasn’t a taxi in sight, I turned and returned to the ferry.
Two minutes later we arrive at the hotel. I honestly could have walked (suitcase and all). It turns out to be an absolute charming little hotel. It has a really nice pool and pool bar. It has wireless internet in the rooms, safes in the room, and my own balcony looking out at the port.
Of course the first question I ask her is where the nudist beach is. She laughed and showed me the way. I assured her I was not interested in bathing nude but I am doing a Greek blog and need to have proof that I visited one of the “special” beaches. Told me it was a half hour walk or I could take a bus.
Went to my room, unpacked (the best I can) and got into my full bathing suit and headed on my journey to
Well, sorry to disappoint you but there was not one person who opted for the natural look. They all had their bottoms on. I have grown quite use to the topless sunbathers as they are every where and quite the norm. So where are the nudists? Well to be honest with you I saw one person who was completely naked except for a hat. It is just that they were two years old and that isn’t exactly what I had in mind.
So instead of the day being a complete bust I decided to work on the banana hammock documentary.
All that walking for a baby and two hammocks! What a rip off! Well not really, as they weren’t ripped off, they stayed on. Better luck next time. I will certainly have my camera ready to go.
Do you know that there have been over 2792 hits on my blog? I can’t believe it and I don’t have a clue as to what they consider a hit. I assume it is someone looking at the blog. If that’s the case, then that’s awesome.
Went for dinner, to a restaurant that the hotel recommended. It is down at the port and I was the only one there. (As usual) Most people don’t go out to eat until after dark. Their night starts at midnight or one o’clock. This “Shirley Valentine” has already clocked three hours of night time sleeping by that time.
Charlie did invite me to go out with her tonight by texting me. These young kids don’t realize for their one minute entry takes me 36 minutes to text back. I have to spell all the words out correctly and none of the “ U R so QT.” I don’t understand that and I need to see the language in full. So I declined her invite and headed back to enter my blog. My battery will have to charge the entire night as I am in a hotel that has clued into people who disconnect the electric card when they leave the room. So as soon as I leave my room all power goes off, so there goes any charging. My poor electric toothbrush may never work the same. I have so many things that need charging and I only have the one converter. My first priority is the lap top. Second is my cell phone (for the text messages, thanks Johanna) and third is my camera and last but not least is the electric toothbrush.
This is a very different island. It is definitely geared to the young folk and I only saw one couple that even came close to my age. They were on a motor bike and stopped for a beer in the restaurant that I was having dinner. As they were leaving, the wind picked up and the lady’s dress lifted in the wind to reveal that she was not wearing a thing underneath. Okay, too bad my camera was dead at the time. I should have asked them where they like to sunbathe so I could go there tomorrow. Life is so dull without a camera.
So I am very sorry for no pictures today, but I will make up for it tomorrow. Not that the environmental sights are as good as Santorini but I can tell you the people sights are a LOT more interesting. You should see how these young people dress. Very interesting!!!!
