Getaway to the Greek Isles

July 1, 2019

waiting for the Word?

 

June 28, 2019, Hydra & Poros, Greece —We had a day ’off’ as in, we didn’t rehearse until the evening. We boarded a local cruise boat (smaller than a ‘ship’) for a getaway to two Greek isles that are relatively near Athens: Hydra (say hee‘-dra) and Poros. Since I’m staying after the tour (with a couple dozen other singers) to do a 3-day cruise among the more famous islands, there are more isles to come. ​

 

​Noteworthy in the photo above: the Andrea Camilleri novel.

My favorite Sicilian mystery writer! 

 

The boat...

 No, wait... that’s somebody’s private yacht, 

flying a British Naval ensign.

 

On Hydra... boats and burros to charter...

 

For those who don’t know: I’m a Lulu... one of the 7-member, all-girl Ukululus: Ukaholics Unanimous.  

 

 The local hardware store.

 

I didn’t dare set foot in this shop... the Picasso-patterned dress was gorgeous and I’m sure I didn’t have enough drachmas....

 

Contrary to previous travels, I haven’t posted many, if any, doors this trip. This will make up for that...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 This is a re-construction site....

After a very nice lunch onboard, we stopped at Poros. There was less to see, but I did manage to buy a new shirt.

This is a church... barely wider than its door... 

 And inside...

 The Poros Police Station...

 Need mushrooms? Fresh ginger? No, wait... these are sponges. 

After a full day on the water and the islands, we rehearsed again with the Academica Athens Orchestra. No rest for the weary...

 

Next up: Concert #1, at the Athens Opera at the Niarchos Cultural Center.
