... the museum we had to get to the port to take the ferry to Hydra. We had bought our tickets online with the help of our hotel staff the day before. They told us we had to get there an hour early to pick up the actual tickets. We took the metro and got there on time, but then had to wait out in the heat to get on the boat.

Down at the port, the bells in the church tower ring on the hour. You can’t hear them from the house. The shops in the port are open until well past 10 o’clock at night.
