Today was a bit of a wasted day, between checking out of a hotel, then going to drop off laundry, then finding a hotel to check into to, it was late in the day. I'd rather use a coin launderette, but from scouring the city the past couple of days I don't think they exist so have had to drop it off at a staffed launderette.
Found a bunch of things to do, but was slowly disappointed as I went out to do them.
I went to the dock to take a quick ferry across to the island fortress Bourtzi. But the whether wasn't good enough. It didn't seem to bad, just a little overcast. But ether the threat of rain is enough or there was too much wind.
I then went to the Archaeological Museum, but the times I saw on the internet were wrong. I felt bad since I'd missed the closing time by a half hour, but then realized it was closed on a Monday anyway. The city is actually very quiet on a Monday.
I did go to the Komboloi Museum. Komboloi are worry beads and are based on the same thing rosaries are based on. But these aren't religious, just something to keep your hands busy. Though they are related a little to the mantra "idle hands to the Devil's work". But the museum is basically the top floor of a shop to help sell the beads.
Everything else has been closed so I've just had an easy day.
