Next, our guide took us to see a Monastery, advising us that she hoped it would be open. Surprise, surprise, it was closed, so we saw the town square instead.
Next, we went to a small area close to the water, where we were allowed off the bus for 5 minutes, just enough time for our guide to have another cigarette. Everybody was on the bus waiting the the guide to finish her cigarette, some didn't even bother getting off the bus.
Finally, we ended up at the restaurant for dinner, not realising that it was all seafood on offer. We had been advised that we would be eating Greek food and yes the Greeks like to eat seafood, but we had imagined souvlakia, moussaka, etc. As we have allergies to seafood, we ate the salad and they did cook some hamburgers for the kids. It was good to get back to the ship and eat well. The walk back to the ship was the best part, as we saw the Costa Fortuna all lit up in the harbour.
Finally, we sampled Greek souvlaki, haloumi, and Tzatziki - soooo goooood.
Had some spare time to walk around on our own and did some more souvenir shopping.
Later we had to take either the cable car or the donkey ride or walk down to the harbour to catch the tender boat back to the ship. Our guide advised us not to do the donkey ride, but we decided not to take her advice as this was a once in a lifetime experience and we didn't want to miss out on it. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our guide (Ellene) was lovely and very informative with a great sense of humour.
