Day 12 - September 22 - Samos
No rain since April. That has all
changed - started with breakfast accompanied by light rain. Enjoyed
international travel channel on the hotel reception and lounge large screen
TV. Interesting to watch sunny Greece
on TV while it rains.
Journeyed out to the Southeast coast to visit a few small beach and fishing
villages - All quiet along the water
front. However, the odorous pine trees sent a rather pleasant whiff upon
each destination. Final stop was the
beach of Mikali.
Smooth pebbles lined the long beach - according to the hotel receptionists,
just a few meters out is a sandy
and shallow bottom. Since the sun was not staying out, we will accept
her knowledge. A late lunch at
Oasis cafe was very much enjoyed - vegetables were from the surrounding
village area. Backdrop was the
clear waters, pebble beach, and mountains of Turkey.
Spent a long conversation with Victoria - a Doctor intern from Manchester,
England. Received quite the
perspective of universal healthcare and firsthand practice. Very
friendly lass (originally from Ireland).
Finished the day with a stroll in Samos Town - purchased tickets for
tomorrow's Ephesus tour, a few
pastries for the hotel return, and replenishment from a bank ATM. A
landscaped lined broad way faces
the Bay and is paralleled with an interior pedestrian way lined with multiple
cafes, clothes shops, fruit stores,
and a few bars. Samos Town is quite "smart" looking without
the overpriced glamour.
Skies continued to flash and a distinctive low rumble thunder finished the
night. Enjoyed the covered
balcony with the pocket French doors - allowing for a full show over the
