Santorini day 3 - 22nd April 2008 @ 4:39 pm «   »

Location: Greece : Santorini day 3

Last night we were invited to join a few friends we met in Santorini to have a bottle of wine on the beach. Two of them, Grace (American) and Ian (French Canadian) are staying at our guest house and Monica (Mexican) joined us. We only started at 11pm and got to bed at 1:30am! It was great fun though and later one of the chefs from a little restaurant on the beach joined us too. Monica, we hope your head is okay this morning after the fall.

This morning we had another late start and after we dropped off our laundry at the local shop, we headed up the mountain for a view from the monastery. The church was closed and the view was great, but unfortunately the weather was a bit hazy.

After that we went to explore the capital of Santorini, Fira, and walked around the cobbled streets. The town is beautiful, but it was extremely windy – we couldn’t even put the backpack down as it would just blow away.

We started to become used to our siestas in the afternoon and today was no exception. We’re planning on posting a few photos tonight if we have time, but we’ll let you know.

Thanks for all the messages today, it is really great!

Looking forward to seeing your phodies.. We are, once again, sitting on our stoep having a braai and a glass of red wine, listening to the waves breaking and enjoying a beautiful autumn evening… Boys are both in bed, sharing a room (not to get lonely – as Luca puts it :) – they’re growing sooo much so quickly…!

Hi Brad & Anree,

Thanks for all the updates. We don’t get a chance to check the news very often, so it’s great.
Glad to hear it is going well with the boys and the new house.
Lots of love

Hi julle twee
Dit gaan baie goed met ons. Ons geniet die laaaang naweek baie. Net jammer dit moet alweer einde kry.
Ek het toe Skype installeer en my Account is: benjedeacon
Ek weet nog nie mooi hoe dit werk nie, maar as julle reg is met Skype, dan moet julle seker my laat weet wat julle Account is en dan moet ons seker ‘n tyd afspreek wanneer ons gaan Skype
Laat weet maar en geniet julle self verder.
