The drunk frenchman- Julian Togi and Frenchie all got tattoos in İos that said "Like a Ouzo." Some (Julian and Frenchie) went with the more conservative back tattoo. Others (Togi) went with the bolder across the chest. Since leaving we have heard rumors from other travellers that Togi was kicked off the island by the İos police because he kept trying to throw his passport away.
