Journal Entry:
After yesterdays beating we opted to take a breather and stay on Nisiros.

The morning was spent on rented scooters (about US$1.80 / hour). We visted the volcano crater (the crater itself was a little disappointing, but the view on the way up the mountain was great). We rode to Mandraki for lunch (awesome Gyros at $1 each). Went up to Castro, some medival ruins left from the crusades. Nothing compared to Old Rhodes, but still a great setting.

The afternoon was spent swimming (floating), sunning (napping), reading (napping), and just in general relaxing (beer).
