Day 17: I woke up to more rain, so I waited for it to stop. When it did, I quickly walked down the road to the mineral hot springs. Once I got down there, I was completely at a loss as to where it actually was. I walked around in bare feet on the pebbly beach (not comfortable) unable to find any "hot" water at all. I definitely found some warm water, so I sat in that for a while, but it was pretty wavy and not very relaxing.
Eventually I got a little too cold so I put my dry clothes back on and started walking back. (In a towel on the bottom because I completely soaked my pants). On my way up the hill, there was a woman from New York walking down the hill. She asked if I was Mary and of course I said I wasn't. But she offered to show me where the real hot springs were. Turns out you had to climb over a bunch of rocks to the right of the beach. There used to be some sort of apparatus there to make it easier to see, but it's long gone now. We sat in the water for about five minutes and decided that yes, it was not relaxing, it was too wavy to enjoy. The water however, was indeed boiling hot, it must be amazing on a nice calm day.
I went back to the hotel and slept away the day again. I think I made myself a Greek salad for dinner.
