Reached Patras after a night's journey. Via Taxi reached Patras bus stand where we booked tickets for Athens. Across coastline, it was a beautiful journey. And It was mathematics all around as P is written as π ; A as @, B as Beta β; it was fun to judge my secondary school knowledgeSpent 3 days in Athens and visited Acropolis, Parthenon, Syntagma Square, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Police station (as my friend lost his wallet and we had to lodge complaint). Europe (Greece, Turkey) with an Asian feeling starts as you sail across Mediterranean as I could see the street vendors culture selling spices etc. across Athens.

As a part of the Volcano Tour that we had taken, they make a stop at Therasia which is an island with population of 130 people, and ate the best Moussaka for lunch ever at Capt. John's !We finished off the day by sailing to Oia ( pronounced - Ia) which is at the other end of the Santorini Island to witness sunset. A climb up 300 steps from the port to the town of Oia leaves you breathless. Alternatively one can take a ride up on a mule.The typical Greek Island - white houses, blue domes and purple and orange skies - yes that's Oia ! The haze from the Volcano lends a vibrant purple hue to the picturesque sunset that thousands of tourists gather to watch each evening.
