Day 11: Vathy

Day 11: I called the ferry company in the morning and there was no boat to the Fourni Islands until Tuesday. I was stuck for another few days in Samos. Definitely not a bad place to be stuck, so I thought I'd go to the other side of the island to see what's there. George dropped me off in Vathy where I assumed there was a bus to Pythagorio. He didn't wait for me to find out that the bus station was locked, and there were no buses today or tomorrow. OK, so I guess I need to find a hotel. The coffee shop next door let me use the wifi and I found one for 25 euros. Fine. I walked over there and a little old man explained the complicated key system to me in broken English. I had a panini maker, fridge and kettle, so I planned my Christmas day meals. Omelet for breakfast and a bacon turkey havarti panini for dinner, followed by more Samos wine and of course baklava. I walked around picking up all the stuff at various shops because I knew nothing would be open for a few days and I might starve. I had already been around the town quite a bit and there was nothing else to do but watch movies and snooze in my little room.

Sounds wonderful! After reading your latest blogs, I bought a panini maker!

You did not! Haha. They are pretty lovely, but really not a necessary appliance.
