Sounds strange but… let me give you photo reportage
I was supposed to start heading back Monday closer to mainland Greece (opposed to Turkey) but Zoot Allures was hijacked by Dutch pirates (Ulbe and Carla) and hauled my butt to the old pirate island of Fournous.
And we anchored in a bay of an ancient marble quarry
I had to do some diving in some ridiculously blue waters to check the anchor, they spared me the ordeal of going ashore to collect rocks. After that we went to an other bay, tied up and went for lunch. The port was riddled by fishing boats
We had to treck about 200 meters of a desert
Walk another 50 meters on a cement road and then climb stairs full of sirens
And then they threw seafood at me
We fought back but more kept comming
Fight, fight, fight!
Just when I thought we won the battle
They tried to poison me
It was time to head back and they arranged the winds to be right on my nose
A rough day indeed. I thought it was over but the next morning I had to wake up to this
Then went ashore to fill a jerry can of water
But I was captured by the king and queen of Faros beach
And they made me eat more sea monsters, vegetable imam and salade and they stole my wine
But at the end of it I managed to get back home unscathed
Tomorrow Thursday after 16 days I am escaping this wretched part of the world
Ps….. getting back to more civilised islands is gonna suck. First stop Naxos or Mykonos, then Siros to pick up my sis and Panos the sea dog and then head down to Nafplio via Kythos, Spetses etc. But then again, who knows…..
