Laptop Status: Stolen

Just as I was getting into this place and just as we were about to leave. I spent the day sunning myself on the beach, listening to loads of comedy and writing and I get back to our room to discover someone had been in the room, gone through our shit and taken both our laptops.

I didnt believe it at first because my passport, iPod and kindle were all still there. I guess they looked through my kindle and saw “business marketing for dummies” and thought “screw this nerd” so it took us a few minutes to register our stuff had been taken and it wasnt just the cleaning lady going a bit wild.

The door was unlocked and can only be opened with a key so they perp had their own key. Also last night Kadri heard knocking at the door so clearly these guys have keys are were casing the scene waiting for us to leave. We went down to the cops and the guy was good, we went down to the place with him and he talked to the old lady and she was hysterical, refusing to believe something had been stolen from her place. I had given it 50/50 chance she was involved, either that or she was just a crazy old greek lady. The policeman believes she is just a crazy old greek lady.

So we filled out the police report but lacking travel insurance there’s nothing we can do. At first it seems weird why they didn’t pinch our passports and ferry tickets… but then we will be leaving tomorrow never to come back here. I really liked that laptop too.

Tomorrow we are leaving on the highspeed ferry and we wait at Athens airport till 4:30am for our flight to Prague, where we wait another 5 hours for our flight back to Tallinn. I’m content with the trip. I wrote and found some peace and got my tan on. I just wish I didn’t have to lose my laptop in the process.
