Day 7.
Santorini, Greece
Sunday 4/12/09

Today we leave for Santorini. , on the ferryboat. We wake up a 5:00 am and take the Metro to the dock. There we get our tickets and climb aboard. We are sitting in business class, which is at the front of the boat. We are riding on a high-speed ferry. Next to us is a family a lot like us its scary the dad had the same shoes as my dad and the mom had curly hair like mine and so does the daughter. About 2 hours into the trip we start talking to the family they are from upstate New York State and are going to stay in Santorini. So for the rest of the boat ride I talk to there little girl who is 10 and here name is Sophia. When we dock we get a taxi and drive up to our hotel called hotel Keti. After that we got another taxi and drove to Oia-were sisterhood of the traveling pants 2 was filmed-and had dinner and watched the sunset. Then we went a got a taxi and I got a mars bar and we went home

Day 8
Santorini, Greece
Monday 4/13/09

Today we went to Nea Kameni, which is the caldera/volcano island. We took these awesome Pirates of the Caribbean boat. When we got there we had a tour guide and she took us to where the volcano erupts. I wasn't very interesting it was very barren though this man dug a whole in the ground and you could feel the heat coming from the volcano. We went back to the boat and got on it. Then we went to the island right behind Nea Kameni. We had a choose whether or night we wanted to go into the ocean then swim-probably 6 laps in a lap pool then get there sit there for a sec then swim back. Well me my dad and my brother decided we wanted to do it. So we got in our swim suites along with some other kids and waited so we could jump in. when the time came my dad was first and he jumped in and did a cannon ball then Isaac went down the stairs and got scared so he had to come back up and couldn't go so now its my turn I jumped in and boom salt water was every where up my nose in my mouth and ears I felt like I was drawing I kicked back up and broke surface my dad was there and two other people had jumped in two. So we started swimming. When we finally got there we were so excited because the water was cold and a hot spring would be amazing the water was slightly warmer almost like the cold pool in the rec center. So we swim back get on the boat and leave. After we got off we off WE RODE DONKEY it was so fun we paid and then he threw Isaac and me on one and WABAM we were hightailing it up the mountain. Though after it my butt hurt so much. Then we went and did laundry YEAH then me a mom went shopping. We met up with Izzy and dad and then we went to dinner and then bed.

Day 9
Santorini, Greece
Tuesday 4/14/09

Today we are going to the beaches. First we go to one of the black sand beach it hurts your feet. My dad and I went into the ocean and he threw me in. I got so soaked you wouldn't believe. We see our friends again, here and make a plan to meet up tonight a six thirty. After the black sand beach we go to the red sand beach and see the red mountains there's not really red sand. Then we go home I was wet and tired and insanely cranky! I take a shower and we go and meet Sophia and her mom Shelly and the 3 Simians, Sophia's dad, brother, and Grandpa. We go to a restaurant called Noussa and since Sophia grandpa is Greek he ordered so much food its by the end of the night if you asked me to eat anything else I might faint who knows? I tried grilled octopus it was really good sort of rubbery but I would have it again. All right see you tomorrow BYE.
