Unpacking in my suspiciously white and barricaded paradise beach prison cell I was beginning to wonder if this was the time off I was hoping for
The island turned out to be beautiful though. The city, even though extremely touristy, covered with white paint everywhere so as to please the tourist gaze was never the less charming.
That evening I met one, and then three, very nice French Canadian girls from Montréal; Three of them were studying international affairs at McGill hoping to help third world countries with their most urgent problems and the fourth was studying to be a pharmacist. Being very beautiful girls and all-in-all good people, I was glad to spend most of my time on the island with them; Enjoying the tranquil clear sea shore, good Greek food and drinks and the lively Mykonos night life.
Three days into my Mykonos 'day dream' and at that point practically bleeding money, it was clear that this had to end some time. So, on a clear Friday morning I packed up my bags, waved the girls good-bye on my departing ferry and head back to Athens to my all-to-long caged bike. It was clear though, that this time it was going to be just a little more difficult to get back on the road again.
