Day 13: Fourni

View Greece trip, 2018 on baixing's travel map.

At around 10, I started walking to the port. I left the hotel without a word. Before I left, I had already written a bad review of the hotel. I guess this guy read it and got very angry. Suddenly he pulled up beside me in a red truck and started swearing in Greek. I heard him say "puta" I know this is not a good word in a lot of European languages... I just kept walking and ignored him. He started going "POOF POOF" and firing an imaginary hand gun at me. I called 9-11. He drove off.

The police told me to go stay in one place and they would come where I was, so I went to the port, paranoid that crazy guy would come back. The police got to the port a few minutes after I got there, and they drove me back to the station. I told them I wanted to make a report but they told me there would be a fee for that. Are you kidding me? There is a crazy guy harassing people running a hotel in your town and you want me to pay to make a report? Give me a break. I left and went back to waiting for the ferry, in a huff.

I slept a bit on the way there, and when we got to Fourni it was already 3 a.m. I slept until 10 and made myself a nice breakfast on the balcony by the sea.

The woman who owned the hotel said she would come by and see me before 11 and she never did, or I slept through it. I called her and told her I was going out. I saw her on the way to the road and then I went on my way to Kampi beach.
It was nice and actually closer than I expected, so I kept going down the road to another beach, Petrokopio.
It was an ancient quarry and the beach is all white pebbles. That was really cool and it made my day. The sun was beaming down in beautiful rays, and the wind was gentle so I stretched out on the pebbles for a while as I ate my sandwich for lunch. The wind soon turned chilly and the clouds got darker. I decided maybe it wasn't a good idea to watch the sunset today. On my way back to town, I saw some majestic goats and sheep, watching me from their fields.
I got back at 4 p.m. only to find that all the stores were closed. No tea tonight for me! But, I happened to have a couple oranges and a packet of sugar, so I made some hot orangeade. Fine.
