... Athens without getting sea sick. We walk to the metro until the train station, grab a sandwich and take a slow train to Volos....OmG. Inefficiency runs every where.

We stopped in a water front taverna/bar and Kathy got some ice cream, I had a beer, another Mythos, darn I have to drink that beer again. In the store I found a ...

Hydra is a relatively close 40 nautical miles from Athens, making it a popular weekend stop for Athenians. The principal source of revenue is tourism, and there are a variety of accommodations on the island, mostly near the Port area.
