The Aegean Sea Cruise: Mykonos, Greece
The locals and tourists alike are happy relaxing on the beach, boating or just enjoying the fresh and delicious food- eating is a social activity here, and with good reason. We stopped for lunch at one of the many cafes along the main waterfront area and feasted on a delicious Greek salad, some zucchini meatballs, Arabic pie (cheese, tomato and basil) and something they called Pasticia (it was like lasagne with pasta, Bolognese and béchamel sauce. We washed it all down with a cold Mythos beer, just to keep things completely authentic Greek. I took a bunch of photos while in Mykonos. In the interests of not usingup too much internet access time I'll just lump them all below. You'll get a good idea of how wonderful it is here. First, here are photos of lunch:
Look how charming this kitty is in the blue window:

We were utterly taken with Mykonos; it is the sort of place where you can lose yourself in the abundant sunshine and be mesmerized by the gentle waters. I’m ready to pack up the poodles and cat and move here. Today we’re at sea, sailing to Egypt, so stay tuned…
