This beach is trying to kill me...

Water fabulous.

Islands barren.

Food cheap and plentiful.

Ruins ruinous and full of ancient drains.

Highlight so far: Delos, ancient capital of Greece.

Can't type as I injured my finger in a fall due to a combination of ocean slime, flagstones and a double Bourbon & Coke... The good news is, the bartender felt so bad he gave me a free triple Bourbon & Coke.

GirlClumsy has the full Mediterrean story.

ONE EURO GYROS! Excelsior!

Some hours later..
A bloody, battered but unbowed body approaches the beach bar.
Greg: "Greeting oh denizen of Greek Demokratic principle" A question for you if I may"...
What's a Grecian Urn?...
Answer.. "About 200 drachmas per day"... Ha Ha HA Ha........ ...
.......but seriously..
"Two things
"Firstly, Do you know that the second largest Greek speaking city is in Australia?..and
Twodly..I appear to have slipped on yonder rock and Oh sorrow ! I have dropped my B&C.......
What? I am entitled to a tinquple as a replacement...Oh bugrit.. "Tell you what give me a bottle of bourbon and point me at the post mix. I shall lie neath it and consult the Orifice of Delphi
Scene fades to bad singing of
"Oh, I got a little donkey and his name is Equus,,, pom palom"...
While the bartender muses on the apparent inability of Australians to remain vertical

Funny you should mention the scam idea. Many of the fellow travellers we told my tale of alcholic woe all pointed out the free drink potential. I think Paros is about to be filled with the Clumsily Inebriated.

Ios is amazing.. but i'll blog later when my finger stops sending urgent messages to my brain
