Sadly we are leaving paradise. My new favorite place. Every turn is a postcard opportunity. Santorini, Greece.
Here graffiti is a romantic event. The island is literally from a Volcano, so there are white, red, and black beaches. Along this breath taking road, (not breath taking JUST because of it’s beauty, but because of how narrow the roads are, and how far of a drop it is to the bottom). Especially when the biggest buses they make, is coming your way, around a corner and you have to pull over. Not so bad going into town, because you get to pull over closest to the mountain. On the way back you have to pull over to the 1000 foot drop with no railing, kind of breath taking. My mom would love this place, however she would not like getting around the cliffy roads.
Anyway, along this one road to get to our town, there is this a red wall of volcanic rock. People use white rocks to spell out there name on the side. It’s very cool.
Santorini is clean, pure, and beautiful. One night, crowds of people were walking as though there was a concert or on the way to Church. So I investigated where the action was and it was simply to see the amazing sunset. The Churches are simple, yet make a powerful and pure statement by being so simple.
We are on our way to Mykonos. I gotta go. So much to say.
Caio’ for now. -Stacy
