Went with Laura, Jean, and Rachael to explore the ruins and hit the beach. Somehow picked up a local guide on the way (I think he was interested in the girls). Spent the morning and early afternoon exploring the copious ruins (tombs, several churches, a temple, amphitheater, etc.). The afternoon was spent at the beach. A long swim (on the cool side, but bearable) and drying off in the sun (again a few degrees warmeer would have been nice, but it was still quite pleasant). On the way back to the camp we stoped at another of the pension / campgrounds for a beer. Five beers later we realized we were late for diner and it was pitch black out. Managed to make it down the rocky road and across the river to the meager leftovers of diner.
After dinner we (the girls and I, the two others staying at the campground, and Tony, a Kiwi working there) set of on the 5 hour trip to see the Chimera. The Chimera is a mythical beast that breathed fire. The Chimera of Olimpos is buried, and manifests itself through flames that are scattered around the side of a mountain. It's quite a hike to get there, but about half way there one of the girls admirers gave us a lift in his car. The flames themselves were a little disapointing, they looked like any gas fire, except for the most part smaller. 20 - 30 of the flames are scattered around the mountainside, ranging from a few inches to a foot in hight. It is pretty amazing, but somehow I expected it to be more brilliant. Still the flames kept the chill away and the stars were amazing with the crystal air and almost no moon.
