      ... the Greek way is not easy. From my ideas about Greeks along with past experiences, I always envisioned Greeks as just another version of Ukrainians who like to eat lots of good food, drink, and who know how to throw a good party.

      ... and well executed museum. Luckily, most of the explanations were also in English.

      Our final day was spent wandering in the city. We walked on the ancient city wall and then bought a natural sponge from a fisherman. He assured us we wouldn't find a better quality sponge from anyone else! It was extremely windy that day - the harbor was wild with waves crashing over the Venetian wall.
