Oct 29 – Mykonos and Delos
Unfortunately, the last 2,000 years haven't been kind to the island, as most of its treasures and once-fabulous buildings have been sadly destroyed or stolen over time. However, there is just about enough remaining to hint at its former grandeur, and it makes a really interesting site to explore. We saw the remains of various huge temples, a large tumbled-down theatre and the ruined houses of the main town.
Our guides were excellent – Tracy took a liking to her young guide who was, appropriately enough, called Adonis. Jon attempted to bring her down to earth, by telling her that Adonis is just the Greek, for boring old Anthony.
