Spring break was fabulous!
We were sad to leave behind all of the many things that we became accustomed to during our seven days on the island:
Dancing the Great Zorba ("ya know the boobs? shake the boobs!")
A beautiful pool practically all to ourselves
More hot Greek men than we could possibly meet in a week
Ouzo... well, maybe not so much.
Stretchy toilet paper
Gryros, Kababs, Mussaka, Greek Salad, and other wonderful Greek foods
Georgia, our favorite waitress!
Having a coffee maker
The hot island sun that we got tans from!!
...Just to name a few.
But anyway, we had a great week. We all got tans because we spent at least four of our afternoons laying by the pool in bikinis. We made friends with a whole bunch of Greek people and we became very popular with all the resort staff.
Gorgos (the cute bartender at the resort) took us out one of the first nights we were there and we went to a really fancy club/bar along with his friend whom I can't remember then name of. The bar was in Old Town, which is the old part of Rhodes City that is all inside of a huge castle. If you're inside of the castle walls, you're in Old Town. That's where most of the shops, resteraunts, and bars are found. However, we also spent a great deal of time in the New Town (Rhodes City) at Flocafe--the Greek version of Starbucks, and the really delicious gyros place.
One of the other nights that we went out, we didn't have a Greek boy to show us where to go so instead we just took a cab into the city. But within about 30 seconds of getting out of the cab we met Leo and Roberto and they took us out for a night on the town. Interesting night... too much ouzo.
The next morning we went to the village of Lindos by way of Billy, our waitress' very attractive 23 year old sun. He agreed to drive us and tour us around. It turned out to be a great day for it too, since it was the first day that wasn't perfectly sunny and we wouldn't have been able to lay out by the pool. Lindos was beautiful... exactly what you would picture a Greek Island to look like: White boxy houses, cliffs, turquoise water, etc... plus, at the top of the mountain there was the Acropolis with a lot of ancient ruins, very much like the ones we see in Rome. But nonetheless, it was beautiful AND we got to ride donkeys to the top!!!! So much fun. I know it sounds very stereotypical to ride a donkey up a mountain in Greece... and we loved it!
We went to the resort resteraunt for dinner pretty much every night. We tried a couple other places, but we were friends with so many people at the resteraunt that we had more fun being there anyways... plus the food was marvelous! Our waitress, Georgia, taught us how to Greek dance and would constantly say to us "Ya know the boobs?? Shake the boobs!" Haha. She was also determined to hook one of us up with her son.
So in a nutshell, spring break was great. We got a lot of sun, met really cool Greeks, watched plenty of movies, and ate amazing food.
Oh... Yamas means "Cheers!" in Greek.
