Today is Santorini. We got up and exercised (‘Nette did), had breakfast and then headed off to Santorini around 9:30 a.m. The boat anchored, so we tendered to the dock where we started our upward hike to the city. We decided to walk up and it was quite a walk. It was the donkeys’ road also, so it smelled terrible and the day was very hot. Some of the others took the tram to the top.
I overheated (dehydrated) on the way up to the top, so I just sat in the shade for over an hour and slowly drank some Gatorade while Annette shopped and checked on me about every 15 minutes. Once I started feeling better, we ate some gyros, had a smoothie, and then headed back down the smelly hill.
On the way down, an older lady fell from exhaustion. Another man helped me help her the rest of the way down.
After getting to the boat, we crashed in our room for awhile. After dinner, we played Rook with the Braters for an hour or so and then we had to check out the Black and White Officers Ball. We stayed for the introductions and then went to bed.
