... islands. Santorini was quite baron, the land being an old volcano. The lack of flora gives you a clear view of the water on both sides of the island, and makes you appreciate fully the look of the towns and their buildings. We ate more good food (such is our trip), rode a sorry looking donkey up the hill, had a massage, and at least I laughed while Katrina got herself in a pickle with a overly flirty waiter. We finally had our glass of Ouzo whilst snacking on ...

This tour was definitely ...

... of Zeus. Athens is HUGE! Our tour guide said that it is actually two cities in one, each with their own mayor. Some new structures, some old and then ancient ruins right in the middle of it all. Very interesting. Our guide was upset that all the cruise ships schedule their tours in the morning. She has a very valid point. Traffic, parking and pedestrian trails are rediculous.
