Thursday August 19 - Zakynthos, Greece - Zakynthos is a fairly new port of call. It’s also quite new in the sense that it was 90 % destroyed in 1953 by an earthquake and then a resulting fire. There were only a handful of buildings that survived and that was because they were built of concrete. The city has rebuilt itself and is now a great tourist destination. The people are very friendly. It is a very pretty island with lots of vegetation, quite different from the arid islands we have just previously visited. We took a brief tour of the town on the tour train and then taxied up to the top for some lunch and incredible views of the city and harbor.

Tonight we dine a Prime C - the other specialty restaurant. The food and service is just as good as the other specialty restaurant Aqualina!! I had Colorado Lamb chops. Lamb chops from Colorado all the way out in the middle of the Ionian Sea.
