Mykonos is Too Darn Hot

Apparently we were here on the only day during the year where there is no wind. That made for an extremely hot and humid day, so we didn't spend a whole lot of time. We had originally booked a tour to nearby Delos island to view the ruins of the birthplace of Apollo. However, we've seen plenty of Greek and Roman ruins on this trip, so we cancelled it.

Mykonos is a neat little town and it would have been nice spending more time exploring. We did walk many of the streets and saw the windmills and had a really good local meal at a place called Sakis. At Kim's request, here are some pictures of the food.

We looked for the bar where Aunt Robbie and Uncle Paul spent time, but couldn't find it. The closest we came was a place called Sunset Bar instead of Sundown Bar. Oh well, we have some video of the area, so maybe that will bring back some memories for them.

After lunch, we went back to the ship for a dip in the pool. Finally made it up to Movies Under the Stars for a showing of Mama Mia! The concept is great with them bringing around popcorn in the beginning and milk and cookies at the end…the movie not so much. The music was good, we just couldn't stand the "Woo Hoo" girls. Tonight they're showing Frost/Nixon…which I really liked, but I don't think it's good for that atmosphere.

Today we're at sea heading over for Italy, so probably won't blog until tomorrow night (here…what is that, yesterday noon in the U.S.?).
