Naxos' Old Town

 
October 12, 2016   Greece, Naxos
 
 

Morning arrived with the sound of rain but it wasn't rain, it was popping from the electrical transformer next to the hotel, the comfortable and reasonably-priced Anassa suites. Later the hotel's proprietor assured us it was normal, something about the evening humidity.

After a cappuccino Paul and I walked to the old town, old being relative as everything is old. Our goal was a cafe known for views but we could not find it. We visited the archaeological museum. instead, a small collection of art and every-day objects dating from 5300 BC to the 5th century AD. Quick and cheap (2). Uninspired with minimal texts, but cheap and quick.

Next we walked to St George beach, south of town, to watch windsurfers riding the crystal-clear water. Really, the water here is transparent like glass.

My advice should you visit Greece: don't drink ouzo on an empty stomach. Just don't ask me how I know.
