Thursday, May 6th, 2004: Mykonos, Greece
The sun shines brightly this morning, and the day turns into one of those magnificent late spring days that you never tire of. We spend the morning walking around town, down alleys and lanes, lost but who cares?
At lunch, we sit at a café overlooking the harbour, watching the ferries and cruise ships come and go. We read the International Herald Tribune, full of news about yesterday’s bombings in Athens and the effect they may have on the Olympics. As close as Athens is, it feels a million miles away – nothing can interfere with the beauty of the day.
A couple of hours later, paper read cover to cover and coffees drunk, we resume wandering the town. Then it is back to the hotel for naps and books.
A wonderful, relaxing, soul-nourishing day.
