Where I stayed
We had to take the tender boat to get on land. While we were planning on walking to the right towards the new town, 2 other passengers suggested we walk to the left towards the old town. It is only about 10 minutes walk, slightly uphill. Not really what I like best. So when I saw a car coming from behind I decided to hitchhike. The nice Greek lady (Fotini) offered to take us all 4 with her in her little Fiat. How kind of her and how great for us.
After that we also went on the other side of the bridge to see the new town. It is nice as well and has a cute promenade. But there were no tourists and everything was closed.
In the afternoon we watched for the last time the riggers setting the sails. Then the whole crew (all dressed up) gathered for a group photo. It was fun for us to watch until everyone was in position.
During the afternoon tea & coffee (with crepes) one of the other passengers showed us some fruit and vegetable carving. He is chef in a hotel in Cyprus and famous for his carving. It was interesting watching him. He was really fast.
In the evening we had the captain's farewell dinner.
