Not really much to report as I've been doing the same thing nearly every day - waking up at 9-ish, grabbing breakfast (I'm going to get fat here) and heading to the beach for 3-4 hours before returning to the hostel for a full rinse and nap. Wake up, hang around with some peeps and then head out for a pub crawl. I watched the Italy-Germany World Cup match the other night with loads of Germans and I was proud that my people represented! GO ITALY!
We found a few fireworks and celebrated the 4th in style on the beach after a few beers - just like the redneck south!
I rented a scooter one day and toured the whole island. The few pics attached say it all. The volcanic history of the island is well known and one is reminded of it at every turn. The caldera is stunning...volcanic ash and rock everywhere...black sand beaches. I was scheduled on the ferry to Mokonos for this morning, but the ferry has been cancelled the past few days due to wind. I'm not too disappointed about being stuck here. :-)
