Below are some of the photos that I snapped while wandering around in this area. I did find Mike when it was time to head back to our tour bus. He had had a nice rest, got a drink. And waited. He was so good to just wait and wait and wait for me as I wandered and wandered and wandered. And I shared all my photos and descriptions with him when I returned.
Above, our guide is showing us the special place where the skull of St. Titus is kept. I looked though a hole in the top. Something is definitely in there. It could have been an old skull. It could have been Titus'.
Mike was waiting for me when I finished my wanderings in that part of town. I was sure glad to find him right where I left him each time. Or at least close by. Good thing he likes to people watch. :-) Remember, we didn't have functional phones to keep in touch with one another. We walked back through the shops and streets to find our tour bus and returned to the ship. Lots of people tried to sell us lots of stuff. But we bought none of it. I did buy some bookmarks from a vendor when we were in Turkey, but pretty much passed on everything else. Remember, too, we were traveling light. Very light. Anything we bought had to be hauled home with us in our two stuffed carry-on small bags and our two smallish personal items.
We were back on the boat in time for our lunch, and then sailed on to the NEXT stop of the day--Santorini!
