The Hen's & Stag's Night

By the Thursday, the large majority of our guests had arrived. We had given advance notice to all that there would be a combined Hen's & Stag's night before we left Australia, but as we did not know Santorini at all, we had to pick a bar after we arrived.

The bar for the guys was the Tropical Bar, where Jeannie played host. Kick off time was 3pm and we had booked the balcony out, so we were able to sink a few while the sunset over the caldera. It all started rather civilised, but things rapidly degenerated once the tequila shots started flowing... Several times that night, my camera was dropped much to my consternation.

Eventually, the more senior members of the group and those with young children had to leave and at that point, the ladies joined what was left of guys. Jeannie had ordered in some snack food for us and was pumping cheesie music through the speakers), so naturally bad dancing was the order of the day/night.

The end of the night came for Heather and I at around 2am. Of the 40 or so people that had joined us, only one (our Danish friend Kenneth) was left. We headed of to a snack bar and bought the customary kebab, except in Greece it is called an Eros (and the Greek way of spelling it, makes it look like Gyro). While in the eros shop (which sounds as if it should be selling something else), we saw Jeannie as she had finished her shift at Tropical. Then off home to bed...
