In the town of Pythagoria

On the island by the sea

The Dartmouth students arrived in Samos

On the land of pretty beaches

So we went to the Heraion

And a tunnel underground

And we ate by the waves

In a beautiful café

We all love the Samos Heraion

The Samos Heraion

The Samos Heraion

We all love to walk around the island

Walk around the island

Walk around the island

And our friends are all jealous

Cuz yesterday we went jetskiing

But today we had an assignment

(Musical interlude)

We all love the Eupalinus tunnel

The Eupalinus tunnel

The Eupalinus tunnel

We all love volleyball on the beach

Volleyball on the beach

Volleyball on the beach

(Strange noises interlude)

And we live a life of ease

As we walk among the ruins

Sky of blue and sea of green

On the island in the Aegean

We all love cooking food in our kitchens

Food in our kitchens

Food in our kitchens

We all love sitting on our balconies

On our balconies

On our balconies

We all love looking out onto the harbor

Out onto the harbor

Out onto the harbor

We all love staying on this pretty island

On this pretty island

On this pretty island

On a more prosaic note:

Today, we got up, ate delicious toast for breakfast, heard a lecture, took the bus to the Samian Heraion, walked along the beach, ate lunch, played beach volleyball, walked up the hill, explored the Eupalinus tunnel, finished our assignment, cooked dinner (in our kitchens!), and enjoyed the beautiful views.  It was a wonderful day!

Goodnight and we will see you in Turkey tomorrow!
