After our 12 hours of rest, we rolled out of bed and walked up to the main lanai area where breakfast was served until 11am. Although breakfast is not included in the price of our stay, we didn’t feel like walking into town for a bite to eat. Yiannis’s mom made us an omelet and a panini, and we hung out on the lanai overlooking Mykonos’s old port. During our meal, we met a girl from San Francisco who works at Yahoo and who was traveling with three of her friends. We talked to her for a bit before heading out to the Fabrica Bus Station. There are many beaches in Mykonos to choose from, so we decided to check out Psarou Beach on the south side of the island. The bus ride from Fabrica to Psarou was a short 15 minutes and the hike down wasn’t strenuous. We rented an umbrella and chairs for 10 euro and spent the entire afternoon and early evening relaxing, reading, and napping. Thankfully, there wasn’t any crazy loud music, or a bunch of randoms performing on stage like we experienced the day before at Paradise Beach.
It was close to 6pm when we returned to the center of town. Since we hadn’t seen Little Venice yet, we walked along that area of town and discovered a whole host of shops that we hadn’t yet stumbled upon. We took a break to have an early evening cocktail at Aiyan Music Café. The mojito and strawberry daiquiri were both freshly made but super expensive. We hung out and people watched for a while, until we were ready to go back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. We went back to the center of town for dinner at an Italian eatery called Passagio in one of the main squares. We strolled around town after that to walk off our dinner, had another after dinner drink, and called it a night.
