We took our small Hyundai from a car
rental agency across the street who looks like
representing Budget, Europecar, and a few others.
The cost was 35 Euros per day plus gasoline.
At 10 pm, or trip started conveniently from
where Snow White was at Mytilene harbour to
around Gena Gulf then to an ancient city of
Agiassos in the hills. It seemed like the city
was also dwelled by many Turks during the
Ottoman times, so it had very
similar characteristics. The older people,
sitting by the street cafes, yelled and talked
to us giving us directions in Greek, English,
Turkish all at the same time and arguing about
what they said. Then they yell over at the next group
sitting at another shop or cafe
to show us where to go... and all laughed,
having fun with the tourists who got lost.
Anyway, we did not get lost, back down the
hills to Vassilika, Polichnitos, and Vatera by
the sea. We stopped at Aphrodite hotel to use
their facilities, pool, playground and beach.
They said, we only had to drink something,
otherwise 3 Euro per person. Kids enjoyed the
clean beach and water, a pristine day. Later the
spent an additional two hours at the pool.
At 5 pm we departed Vatera back to Vassilika
then went north to Achladeri, Kallonis, Ag
Paraskevi, Mantamados ending up at the northern
coastline. Turning south we stopped at Mistegna,
Thermi and back to Mytillene by 7:30 pm.
We returned the car and went for a dinner
It is now Sunday 2:30 am loud music still
Tomorrow (today) is Sunday, it looks like weather and
wind will be good to go back to Ayvalik, Turkey.
