Rainy Ios

Ios island is very popular with backpackers, so we had to check it out. Unfortunately, it rained pretty much the whole time we were there, but at least we stayed in a pension right in the town of Hora, which is where all of the action is. There are more clubs and bars than restaurants, and our timing was pretty much perfect, as a lot of places were opening for the season the weekend we arrived.

We did some hiking around the city when the rain let up and then hit the town for the night - Orange, Shooters, Blue Note, and Barmacy - clearly not traditional Greek barikia! But, we had a fun time and discovered a drink featured on every single menu named after our beloved city of San Francisco. It has vodka, banana liquour, grenadine and OJ and I am pretty sure I have never seen anyone in the Bay Area order anything thing of the sort.

The day we shipped off for Santorini, the sun finally came out and we got to enjoy the a few minutes watching people try to learn to windsurf. It's apparently harder than it looks...
