Mykonos

Mykonos is the other Greek island you have heard about.  Is it much livelier than Santorini while not quite as charming.  There is a nice beach here, not Caribbean-like but not too rocky.

Unfortunately our time in Mykonos was the only rainy weather we encountered.  No beach for us.  I’ve been to Mykonos once before and what I remember most about the beaches was the 70-80 year old men sunbathing nude.  Sorry for putting that picture in your head!

Here is a pretty picture of Mykonos harbor to help clear the mind:

Mykonos is known for the windmills, number of churches, and the beaches. There are around 600 chuches of all shapes and sizes and only a dozen or so priests to lead them.

Shopping for paintings, jewelry, knickknacks, and olive oil products is fun here.  I’m not big on buying souvenirs but I have a great time here. The only souvenir that I purchase on trips are magnets.  Getting food from the refrigerator is my way of remembering all my travels.

Lunch today consisted of gyros (shocker!) and beer.  Again, yogurt sauce and french fries in a sandwich is the way to do it. Mythos is a very tasty Greek beer.

After lunch is poured rain for a few hours.  We spent our time darting in and out of stores rather than sunbathing (sad!). Someday I will be back to the Greek Islands.  My itinerary will include both Mykonos and Santorini for a few days each plus one other smaller island with a nice beach that I have yet to visit.
